This trend caught the attention of Irfan Pathan, who slammed the fans for floating imaginary ideas on social networking sites.
“When MI was batting crazily few fans had some imaginary ideas, yesterday when Chennai won some fans again thinking on the same line. Guys, it’s good to be supporting your team, but when the other team is winning respect it, Admire how they play, and stop this imaginary nonsense!” Pathan wrote in a tweet.
The trend fell flat as three-time champions won the game in the end. CSK have played exceptionally well in the 14th edition of IPL.
