CHENNAI SUPER KINGS (CSK) might have been banned for two years from the IPL but that hasn’t stopped its die-hard fans to continuously promote the team on social media. The Chennai franchise decided to return a favour to its loyal fans by reviving CSK’s school tournament - Junior Super Kings inter-school T20 tournament.
As reported by TOI, CSK director K George John said,
"Last year, we couldn't conduct this tournament but this year there were a lot of calls from schools and parents across the state who wanted to know if the event was on. And we decided to go ahead with the tournament."
According to reports, the Junior Super Kings inter-school T20 tournament will see a total of 152 teams taking part in the competition. The tournament will be held in four phases and 32 teams are slated to take part in its opening phase.
The director of the Chennai franchise further added,
“Kids form an important fan base for CSK. When kids take a liking to something, parents too tend to get involved. CSK has never gone in search of brand recall. It is the sheer love of the fans and kids which have made CSK such a popular outfit.”
