Ahead of thelatest edition of the much-awaited Indian Premier League, Twitter has launched nine special team emojis, which can be activated by hashtags in English and six Indian languages.

“Through these nine emojis, fans will be able to show instant support to their favourite team. Fans will also be able to follow and participate in live conversations. Stay tuned for more updates and follow the opening game #MIvCSK this September 19 on Twitter,” the microblogging site said in a statement.

The hashtags that will unlock the team emojis are #PlayBold (Royal Challengers Bangalore), #OneFamily (Mumbai Indians), #WhistlePodu (Chennai Super Kings), #KorboLorboJeetbo (Kolkata Knight Riders), #SaddaPunjab (Kings XI Punjab), #OrangeArmy (Sunrisers Hyderabad), #HallaBol (Rajasthan Royals), and #YehHaiNayiDilli (Delhi Capitals).

Twitter India also released a promotional video to present the new IPL 2020 emojis.

The 2020 season of the IPL starts on 19 September in the UAE, with MI facing Chennai Super Kings in a repeat of the 2019 final. Due to the pandemic, the matches will take place behind closed doors.

MI were to face CSK in the opening match of the original schedule as well, with the Wankhede Stadium being the venue on 29 March. However, the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic forced the tournament to be postponed.
