IPL auctions are going on and all team owners are left confused as to who should be included in the team and who should be left out.
Everyone wants the best players i.e. a perfect balance of good batsmen and bowlers. Surprisingly, Chennai is one such team which has all players above 30. Yes, after day 1 of auctions, Chennai Superkings was left with players above 30 years of age.
Leaving Jadeja (29), all other cricketers in Chennai Superkings are 30 years of age. This was the list after day 1 auction;
After seeing the age of all the players in CSK, social media was filled with trolls for all of them. This is how they made fun of the team;
CSK team is like family attending marriage functions , full with uncles .. #WhistlePodu

Young and exciting Shubman Gill goes to KKR.
CSK still picking 34 year olds. No opener. No fast bowler. Just 30+ washed up uncles in the middle order and spin dept.
We really are the dad’s army led by grandpa Dhoni.

Is it CSK or Old Age Home?

CSK bought all the batsmen who are above 30 years of age. It seems they got confused between their batting average and age.#IPLAuction

Seeing age of csk players I won’t be surprised if opponents start touching their feet rather than shaking hands after every game

Then, there was one user who asked CSK why they didn’t select Chris Gayle in their team.

This was when CSK decided to give an epic reply not only to him, but to all who had trolled the team for age of players. Even though Chris Gayle is 38 years of age, CSK sarcastically said that since he isn’t 30 plus, they can’t take him in their team. This is their sarcastic reply;
He hasn’t crossed 30! So team has decided against him. https://t.co/4K1HhvPHEH

The reply read, “He hasn’t crossed 30! So team has decided against him.”
We must say that CSK Twitter handler has a good sense of humor, don’t you think so?
