Chennai Super Kings (CSK) took to Twitter to thank their fans for their tremendous support on the social media platform, despite a poor campaign in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The MS Dhoni-led outfit was the most tweeted about the team in IPL 2020, although they finished seventh in the eight-team rankings. Even their fan hashtags received a lot of support. #WhistlePodu was the second most tweeted hashtag in the UAE. The hashtag #CSK was also third in that category and #Yellove fourth. Thanks to the fans, the outfit also shared Twitter India’s stats. “A great gratitude filled with #WhistlePodu to any superfan who turned our backs on even the toughest outings. May the roar get louder, with your whistles by our side. CSK tweeted.


In the most tweeted about teams section, CSK is followed by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), with champions Mumbai Indians (MI) in third place.

Meanwhile, # IPL2020 was the most tweeted hashtag at the UAE tournament. The tournament has been moved to the UAE this year due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in India.

Three-time champion CSK could only achieve six wins this year and lost eight.


Faf du Plessis was CSK’s highest run-getter, scoring 449 runs from 13 games, with a strike rate of 140.75. He also hit four fifties. His limit was 42 fours and 14 sixes.

Their highest wicket-taker was Sam Curran, who got 13 layoffs in 14 games, against an economy of 8.19.
