- Chennai Super Kings – 33.5 Million
Chennai Super Kings or CSK is the most popular IPL franchise with a massive 33.5 Million followers on social media platforms.
Among the most successful teams in IPL history, CSK has won the title four times. Their constant performance has attracted and kept a strong fan following in part due to this.
CSK features some famous players like MS Dhoni, Moin Ali, and Ravindra Jadeja who have helped them win games in the past. CSK’s dominance in the IPL may be attributed to its consistent victories, high-profile players, and prestigious brand name.
In particular, MS Dhoni has been crucial to their success and is often regarded as the team’s emotional center. He was instrumental in CSK’s four title runs (2010, 2011, 2018, and 2021).
- Mumbai Indians – 32.1 Million
The Mumbai Indians is the second most famous IPL franchise in terms of fan support due to their excellent and consistent play throughout the season. The team, who has a quality roster and a solid track record, won their sixth IPL title and quickly became a fan favorite.
The success of the Mumbai Indians is due in large part to the presence of such all-stars as Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, and many more.
As captain, Rohit Sharma has been crucial to India’s recent success on the cricket field. His tenure as captain has resulted in five IPL championships for the Mumbai Indians (in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020).
- Royal Challengers Bangalore – 26 Million
The Royal Challengers Bangalore had a star-studded squad, headed by captain Virat Kohli and included AB de Villiers and Faf Duplessis, but they could not win any tournament.
RCB is widely regarded as one of the league’s most formidable teams, and its games consistently draw large crowds. The inclusion of Virat Kohli is a major factor in the team’s massive popularity.
Despite its talented roster, RCB has yet to win the IPL despite reaching the championship game on two separate occasions (in 2010 and 2016).
- Kolkata Knight Riders – 25 Million
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan is a co-owner of the popular Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders. They may not have as many followers as the Mumbai Indians or the Chennai Super Kings, but they are still the fourth most popular IPL team.
The success of the Kolkata Knight Riders on social media may be directly attributed to the work of Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta. The squad has amassed a total of 25 million social media followers, including 4.7 million on Twitter, 16 million on Facebook, and 2.9 million on Instagram.
- Delhi Capitals – 14.5 Million
The Delhi Capitals (formerly the Delhi Daredevils) is a top favorite among Indian Premier League fans despite the team’s lack of a championship. With 8.2 million, 2.5 million, and 3.4 million followers, respectively, their social media presence is undeniable.
- Punjab Kings – 14.1 Million
Starting with Yuvi and Maxi and continuing with KL Rahul and Chris Gayle, the Punjab Kings have a history of acquiring extremely marketable players. They also profit from the fact that Preity Zinta, a popular actress, is on board. One member of the team now has 8.4 million Twitter followers, while the other two have 2.9 million and 2.8 million respectively.
- Sunrisers Hyderabad – 12.3 Million
The auction table for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) was one of the busiest at this year’s IPL super auction, and the team ended up with only 10 lakhs.

- Rajasthan Royals – 10.4 Million
The Rajasthan Royals squad became famous because they won the first-ever Indian Premier League title in its debut season. Yet since then, they’ve never been to the championship game and have only made the playoffs three times.
Sanju Samson is the team’s current leader, and they figure to have a formidable setup for the next season. With 4.8 million Facebook likes, 2.8 million Instagram followers, and 2.6 million Twitter followers, their online fan base is substantial.
- Lucknow Super Giants – 2.5 Million
