Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) 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 spending almost half of their remaining purse for buying the Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, who became the most expensive overseas buy in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

On the other hand, CSK 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.

The banter continued with CSK and KKR with fans thoroughly enjoying the back and forth.

Having already retained their crucial cogs, CSK added four bowling options to their squad. Apart from bidding big for Piyush Chawla, the Chennai-based franchise picked up England all-rounder Sam Curran, Australia’s Josh Hazlewood, and Indian uncapped R Sai Kishore.
