KXIP Poke Fun At Rajasthan Royals, Get Trolled In Response
Rajasthan Royals gave an epic response to KXIP.
Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises have started setting the tone for the 2019 edition of the tournament before it gets underway from March 23. After Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were involved in a banter, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Rajastan Royals (RR) opened their accounts in an epic manner. Rajasthan Royals will be donning pink jerseys in the upcoming edition of IPL and KXIP made a fun of it by saying, "feeling Pink aren't we, @rajasthanroyals?"
The Jaipur-outfit did not hold back in response and said, "Hey @lionsdenkxip, we'll save you the blushes, considering you've never won in Jaipur. History is quite comforting, isn't it?"
