On Friday, just a day before IPL 2022, the entire cricket Twitter was filled with opinions related to the Sanju Samson and Rajasthan Royals incident. Now, it has been revealed that the entire drama was just a prank. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Rajasthan Royals claim the entire Sanju Samson incident was a prank.
Rajasthan Royals claim the entire Sanju Samson incident was a prank
It all started with Rajasthan Royals posting a picture of Sanju Samson, which the captain did not like. Here is how he initially reacted to it:

Later, the likes of R Ashwin also reiterated the same and soon, social media was flooded with tweets criticizing the RR franchise. Later, the team made an official announcement stating that they would be going ahead with a few changes in their social media team. This again received a lot of criticism because a little felt that the mistake was forgivable.
However, much to the surprise of many, RR recently has put out a post claiming that the entire incident was a prank. Obviously, there were numerous reactions to this sequence.
Twitter had mixed reactions to RR’s move
Firstly, after Sanju Samson made the Tweet and the RR admin was announced as fired, the Kerala player’s name started trending for all the wrong reasons. A little felt that he must have communicated the decision internally rather than taking it to the public. At the same time, RR admin got sympathy because the team had done well so far in making the franchise an entertaining one on social media.
Now, with the entire event being a prank, not many knew how to react to this. A few said that the drama was not in the right spirit. Others opined that the repercussions could be felt by Sanju Samson. Here are a few more Tweets in this regard:
This prank was incomplete without a fake audition. 😂Advertisement

If @rajasthanroyals is considering to engage in such ridiculous pranks in the future, I'm sorry I'm gonna unfollow them and might even consider unfollowing Sanju Samson for agreeing to do such stuff. I don't care whether people think I'm not cool enough
