IPL 2020 Promo Launched: Witty Video Takes Internet by Storm
The much-awaited IPL 2020 promo was launched on Sunday, February 23. The official Twitter handle of the Indian Premier League (IPL) shared a video marking the prelude to the world’s most-followed T20 franchise cricket league. Season 13 of the IPL is all set to begin from March 29 with the first match to be played in Mumbai between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. MS Dhoni will make a comeback to cricket, much to the delight of his fans. He last played for India in the 2019 World Cup against New Zealand.
The IPL 2020 promo features all the premier players from the various franchisees. The likes of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Andre Russell gets mentioned in the video. The video opens with a government office clerk dropping a few files to which a CSK fan responds him saying that he is aged enough to retire. The aged clerk wittily replies to him saying ” Kya Tumhara Wala Khel Paayega” ? in a subtle and witty tone. MS Dhoni’s ability to finish games and his longevity to play the game gets mentioned in this video.
The tagline for this IPL season reads “Khel Bolega”. Its hashtag also has been trending on Twitter.
