The IPL has a format that could be heartbreaking for the fans sometimes. The fans invest so much in a cricketer and due to the retention rules, they could see the player leave for a different franchise. A similar event has happened at the recent IPL 2022 Mega-Auctions. Faf du Plessis, a popular name in the Chennai Super Kings‘ fanbase, will turn up for Royal Challengers Bangalore from IPL 2022. Fans were unhappy as the South African will not represent the yellow outfit anymore. A recent video posted by CSK further reiterated the situation of the fans. In this article, we take a look at how fans on Twitter reacted to the Faf du Plessis video posted by CSK recently.
Faf du Plessis video posted by CSK recently
Ever since Faf was signed by RCB, there has been constant interaction between the player and CSK on social media. CSK was naturally unhappy about letting go of their player and for Faf, it is the end to a beautiful journey. The four-time champions relived the best of Faf at the franchise and brought out a special video on Tuesday. Here is the video by CSK:

Meanwhile, Faf is prepping up for life in RCB. As per reports going around, he could as well captain the franchise from IPL 2022. With Virat Kohli having given up the role, RCB would need an experienced name who will be available throughout. Hence, Faf seems the best option at the moment.
Twitter reacts to it
After CSK posted the video, plenty of fans of the player and the franchise returned with their opinion about the situation. Of course, many were yet to digest the fact that Faf will not play for CSK in IPL 2022. A few even asked for CSK to somehow pull off a trade with RCB. Here are a few more reactions in this regard:

Slowly hitting me what we are not going to have in the future.Advertisement
At least Raina isn't going to play for a rival. Faf probably captains one….
Thanks for everything @faf1307Advertisement
