CSK and KKR exchange pleasantries on Twitter
KKR replied to CSK's tweet with a question in Tamil
The IPL auction 2020 was held on Thursday in Kolkata
Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders's Twitter handles were seen exchanging pleasantries after the IPL auction 2020 that was held in Kolkata on Thursday. KKR were extremely active, making nine new additions to their squad, including splurging the cash on Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, who became the most expensive overseas buy in the Indian Premier League. CSK, on the other hand, made just four buys -- spending big on Piyush Chawla and Sam Curran. The CSK Twitter handle posted a picture of an unseen CSK member eating a "rosogolla" in the IPL auction 2020.
Soon enough, Kolkata Knight Riders' Twitter handle replied, inquiring if it was good.
