Rajasthan Royals have issued an official statement after their captain Sanju Samson was unhappy with the IPL team’s latest social media prank on Twitter. Samson was clearly unhappy with the social media team after they posted an edited photo of him on the team bus.
While the post was apparently intended as a joke, Samson took offense and made his frustration public. In response to the tweet, Samson wrote on his official Twitter account, “It’s okay for friends to do all this, but teams should be professional.”
After Samson openly criticized the RR franchise for their actions, the royals have now come forward and issued a statement. They have made it absolutely clear that they will be making changes to their approach and team on social media following the recent incident.

“Everything is fine in the squad ahead of the first game as the boys prepare for SRH. Management will review our overall digital strategy and appoint a new team in due course.
“We know it’s IPL season and fans want the account to post regular updates. We will find temporary solutions in the meantime,” Rajasthan Royals management said on their official website.
In recent years, the RR Twitter account has become a fan favorite for its hilarious social media tweets. Some of their memes have gone viral multiple times across the internet, with cricket fans praising the franchise for having a social media presence that interacts with supporters.
Remarkably, Samson is poised to lead the Rajasthan Royals for the second season after making his debut as captain in IPL 2022. Samson was retained by the early champions for Rs. 15 crore along with England wicket-keeper batter Jos Buttler and uncovered Yashasvi Jaiswal for Rs. 11 and Rs. 4 crore respectively
