Royal Challengers Bangalore recently compared its skipper Virat Kohli with a lion.
Chennai Super Kings came up with a side-splitting response.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) will soon kick-off in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Before the players arrive in the gulf nation, IPL franchises have increased their social media presence in order to interact with fans and admirers.
Following the bandwagon, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) came up with an interesting post on the ‘World Lion Day’. The Bangalore-based franchise uploaded a photo of their skipper Virat Kohli along with a lion on its official Twitter handle and asked users to spot the difference between them.

Numerous users stormed into the post and published their reactions. However, two responses grabbed all the attention and tickled fans’ funny bone. Firstly, it was RCB’s spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal, who simply pointed out the clothing difference between the two pictures.
“Difference hmmm in the first pic wearing clothes and in 2nd pic widout clothes,” wrote Chahal.

The second reply came from RCB’s rivalry team Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who came up with a rib-tickling comment that left everyone in splits.
“Mum’s been crying all day. Where did you go? What have you done to your hair?!” tweeted CSK.

At present, both teams are preparing for the 13th edition of the lucrative league. While the MS Dhoni-led side will leave for the UAE by August 22 after finishing their 5-day practice session camp in Chennai, RCB will execute practice sessions in UAE itself.
IPL 2020 will be played behind closed doors under a biosecure bubble.
While the Kohli-led team will be hoping to change the fortunes and win their maiden IPL title, Chennai would be looking to become IPL champions for the fourth time.
