Chennai Super Kings took a hilarious dig at themselves after Kings XI Punjab opener Mayank Agarwal scored a stunning ton against Rajasthan Royals in the ninth match of IPL 2020.
Agarwal, on Sunday, blew away Rajasthan Royals with a stunning century, helping Kings XI Punjab post a massive total of 223 for 2, the highest score in IPL 2020 so far. He scored 106 runs and shared a record 183-run stand with fellow opener KL Rahul who scored 69.

Agarwal reached his first-ever IPL century off just 45 deliveries to register the second fastest century by an Indian in the competition. His stunning knock was studded with ten fours and seven big sixes.
Chennai Super Kings troll themselves:
Soon after Agarwal got out in the 17th over of Kings XI Punjab’s innings, Chennai Super Kings trolled themselves on Twitter. Taking a hilarious dig at themselves, the three-time champions stated that they would watch the next game with their TV switched off as Agarwal got out as soon as they switched on the TV today, tweeting:
“Switched on the TV and the fabulous Mayank Agarwal got out. Planning to watch our next match with the TV off.”

The Chennai-based outfit took a dig at their poor run in the competition so far. Unlike the previous seasons, the MS Dhoni-led side is looking like a pale shadow of its usual self and has lost two of their first three games. In both the losses, their batsmen looked out of sorts as Chennai Super Kings suffered back-to-back defeats while chasing for the first time since 2008.
Chennai Super Kings will be looking to get back to winning ways when they lock horns against Sunrisers Hyderabad on October 2.
