While Gujarat Titans won IPL 2022, Virat Kohli seems to have won on Twitter as he also topped the list of "most tweeted about players". "His undeterred spirit to bring the team their first title as well as his smashing comeback in a must-win match against Gujarat Titans had fans lauding him throughout the season," Twitter said in a statement.
Kohli was followed by MS Dhoni. "He continued to make rounds across timelines all season long, especially exciting fans with his Dhoni-esque finisher against Mumbai Indians," Twitter stated.
Also, Royal Challengers Bangalore grabbed the top spot among "most tweeted about teams" in IPL 2022 owing to their close calls in their quest to secure their first league trophy. They were followed by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who have won the trophy four times while five-time champions Mumbai Indians grabbed the third spot.
