Twitterati Are Trolling Murali Vijay For Not Listening To Faf du Plessis: The curtain raiser of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is turning out to be an absolute thriller. The excitement of the opening clash is a repeat of last year’s final when Mumbai Indians locked horns with CSK in the showdown final match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.

Before the match started, MS Dhoni won the toss and chose to field first. Rohit looked disappointed at the toss but he kicked off the IPL 2020 season in style with a four. Mumbai Indians kickstarted the opening clash with a bang and managed to put some good runs at the scoreboard. However, skipper MS Dhoni and his squad restricted Mumbai Indians to 162 runs.
A lot was expected from the experienced batsmen of Chennai Super Kings, however, they failed to give a stunning start to the innings. CSK faced two big blows during the start of the innings.
Murali Vijay and Shane Watson walked out to start the innings for CSK and Trent Boult was given the responsibility to start the bowling attack.

Trent was successful to give a breakthrough to Mumbai Indians as early as in the very first over as he successfully trapped Shane Watson before wicket on the last ball to remove him cheaply for 4 runs.
CSK lost their second wicket within two overs as opener Murali Vijay was caught leg before wicket on the final delivery of the second over from James Pattinson. However, Murali Vijay’s dismissal has stirred a little controversy, as fans believe that he wasn’t out. Even Faf du Plessis was sure that the ball was going down leg but Murali Vijay didn’t listen to him and made his way towards the pavilion.
As soon as Murali Vijay got dismissed, social media was flooded with reactions from the disappointed fans of Chennai Super Kings, who just can’t stop trolling and slamming Murali Vijay for not listening to Faf du Plessis. Fans are leaving no stone unturned to express their disappointment over the poor decision and poor performance of Murali Vijay.
Here, check out the reactions of Twitterati on this:
The ball he got out was actually not out. Vijay was not even looking at Faf who was sure it was going down leg.
