The biggest extravaganza of cricket, Indian Premier League 2019 is all set to start from March 23 with the first match to be played between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). At present, the schedule of only first two weeks is out but the franchises have already started taking a jibe at each other on the Internet.
Every team of IPL is pretty active on social media, especially on the micro-blogging site Twitter as it is one of the best platforms to share information with fans.
Recently, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) took to Twitter to have some fun by taking a dig at Rajasthan Royals (RR). Both these teams will be playing their first match of IPL 2019 against each other at Jaipur.
The banter was started by the Punjab team as it tried to make fun of the Rajasthan team by saying that they hope the encounter between both the teams doesn’t leave RR red-faced.
This is what KXIP tweeted,
“Feeling Pink aren’t we, @rajasthanroyals?
Let’s hope an encounter with us in our #IPL2019 opener doesn’t leave you red-faced 🤭

However, this banter was won by Rajasthan Royals hands down as they reminded Punjab of their track record of never winning in Jaipur.
“Hey @lionsdenkxip, we’ll save you the blushes, considering you’ve never won in Jaipur. History is quite comforting, isn’t it? 🤭 #HallaBol”

Well, this is just the beginning and we will be witnessing many more banters in the near future. What do you say?
