Ahead of IPL 2021, which is set to start on April 9 in Chennai, Twitter India has come up with special emojis for all the franchises. But they made a huge mistake while making one for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

RCB's hashtags '#PlayBold', '#WeAreChallengers', and '#RCB' all have Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) jersey instead of their own. Twitterati saw the funny side of it and there were hilarious reactions to it.

Even the official Twitter account of CSK took to the micro-blogging site to highlight the mistake with a picture featuring Rajinikanth. ".@Twitter #WhistlePodu #Yellove #PlayBold #RCB," they wrote.
