Despite over 4 months remaining for the 13th edition of the IPL to be kicked off, the pot is being stirred with the trades, retentions, and releases. The IPL franchises’ social media handles are facing the heat as well with the early mind games.

Rajasthan Royals cranked up the heat with a collaged image of Ben Stokes and David Warner with the caption as @benstokes38 ‘s book should be an interesting read……

This was in reference to the statement made by Ben Stokes where he mentioned that David Warner’s constant chirping in the field motivated to bring out his best in Headingley.

Royals fueled it by posting another tweet. “Can’t wait to read the book @benstokes38! Ordered your copy yet, @SunRisers?”.

The IPL 9 winners duly responded with a tweet of their own which read “Why don’t you gift it to @davidwarner31 when he gets his 4th orange cap in #IPL2020?,”

The thread did not end there as the two parties traded cheeky blows to one other before finally calling it a truce.
