Rajasthan Royals admin not sacked, franchise confirms prank

IPL 2022: Kumar Sangakkara Heaps Praise On Rajasthan Royals Skipper Sanju Samson

The Rajasthan Royals have confirmed that their sacking of their Twitter admin team was a prank. Here’s the video they posted this morning, showing the team conducting fake interviews to fill the post of their next admin. At the end, the Royals’ admin thanks several players and Twitter accounts for their collaboration, including captain Sanju Samson who was at the heart of the controversy.

The Royals’ twitter has been the subject of much speculation lately over this elaborate prank. Their feed had been drawing attention for its fun and engaging banter, but that seemed to come to an abrupt end with Samson blowing up over a post that crossed the line. The Royals then posted a sombre response last night, indicating that their admin’s service were being terminated.

However, another cryptic video involving R Ashwin, Kumar Sangakkara and Lasith Malinga bidding goodbye to the admin had fans second guessing the authenticity of this byplay.

Some fans met the prank with positivity, and appreciation for the light-hearted banter ahead of the IPL.

 

But most people found it hard to find the humour in the publicity stunt.
