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.
