Still, 3 months are left before the next edition of the Indian Premier League – IPL 2020 gets underway but the franchises have already started competing with each other. This time not on the field, but on social media handles. The IPL franchises, on Friday, inspired by the latest trend on Twitter named #NewPassword involved themselves on the trend as well.
As per the new password trend going rounds in twitter, various websites, brands and teams upload photos of them resetting their password, following the password change prompt, with the final step being ‘New Password’, ‘Re-Enter New Password’. IPL teams also joined this latest trend.
Various IPL teams came up with thought-provoking and hilarious tweets related to the password trend.
The funniest of that was by tweeted by Rajasthan Royals. Their new password contained the same number of words as Virat Kohli’s favourite word on the cricket field which was Ben****. And when the new password looked weak, they changed it to Ben Stokes to make it stronger.
Kings XI Punjab used this opportunity to brag about their new captain KL Rahul. Their new password was Rahul and when prompted to re-enter the password they wrote #CaptainPunjab. KL Rahul was named the new skipper of KXIP just after the auction. They already traded their previous captain Ravichandran Ashwin to Delhi Capitals during the trading window.
Royal Challengers Bangalore too used this opportunity to praise their skipper Vidathe Kohli. They used Kohli's obsession with breaking records as their password trend.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, used this opportunity to claim that their skipper Shreyas Iyer is the best choice and suitable candidate for the Indian national team's most talked about no.4 position in limited-overs cricket.
Hyderabad based franchise Sunrisers came up with a series of posts regarding this trend. One of which was setting the password as ‘The Bull' and re-entering it as David Warner to make it strong. The rest two were to praise the Hyderabad biriyani and to praise their fans, otherwise known as the orange army.
One of IPL's most successful team, CSK came up with a simple tweet regarding the same.
On the other hand IPL's other 2 premier teams Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders so far haven't joined this twitter battle.
