Since the inception of the Indian Premier League, it has become hugely popular in the country. Several other cricketing nations have introduced their own leagues similar to IPL. But the IPL teams trump any other T20 side in the world in terms of popularity.
The IPL teams have a huge fan following on social media. All the 8 current teams interact with the fans on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. It only adds to the popularity of the league. The 8 teams collide on the field, but off the field as well, there is a battle amongst them on social media.
Here’s how the IPL teams rank on social media
#8 Rajasthan Royals
Rajasthan Royals are the least popular among all the IPL teams on social media. The franchise had won the inaugural edition in 2008. But since then, they haven’t made a massive mark in the league. The absence of big names has also resulted in the least popularity. RR has always been a side that consists of smaller names of cricket since the first edition.
