The IPL teams are some of the most popular sports teams in the world with their following in the millions of Instagram followers and certain teams have had the opportunity to have an IPL team for around 16 years and they are some of the teams with the best fanbases in the world and these teams are some of the most followed teams in the cricket world. The brand value of the IPL has gone up to over 26,000 crores in brand value and it will keep growing.
So, let’s look at the Top 5 Most Followed IPL Teams on Instagram and talk about these teams.
1) Chennai Super Kings – 12.9 Million
The most followed IPL team on Instagram is the Chennai Super Kings but a few months ago it was the Mumbai Indians but the title that CSK won earlier this year has contributed to them gaining many new followers and now they are the number 1 most followed team on Instagram. CSK is the joint most successful team in the IPL with 5 IPL titles and they will look for one more next season and their talisman MS Dhoni will play in his last season next year.

2) Mumbai Indians- 12.7 Million
The second most followed IPL team on Instagram is the Mumbai Indians which was the most successful IPL team till a few months ago but now it has company. Mumbai Indians also has a loyal fan base just like the Chennai Super Kings and they have built this in the span of 16 seasons and they have also won 5 IPL titles but in the last 3 years they have not been able to win a title so the number of new followers is not as steady

3) Royal Challengers Bangalore – 11 Million
At number 3 is a team that has not won an IPL title but it has some of the most loyal fans in the world and one man has been responsible for this and his name is Virat Kohli. Since 2008, Virat Kohli has played for the RCB team and he has made over 7000 runs but the fans have been frustrated that despite having such a great team over the years the RCB team has not been able to win an IPL title. The social media following of the team does not match the performances in the field.

4) Kolkata Knight Riders – 3.8 Million
The team at number 4 with the most Instagram followers is Kolkata Knight Riders with 3.8 Million Followers and Kolkata Knight Riders have 3.8 Million Followers and the difference between The Top 3 and Kolkata Knight Riders is the proof that the teams below the Top 3 are not as popular snd Kolkata Knight Riders have won 2 IPL titles and hopefully the Followers increase and for that KKR need a few star players who will boost the profile of the team. It is too good a team to not even have 4 million followers.

5) Delhi Capitals – 3.5 Million
At number 5 is the team that has yet to win an IPL title and this is the reason that they are number 5 despite having some of the biggest players play for them. They made the biggest mistake by not picking Virat Kohli in the 2008 IPL auction and this has affected them deeply ever since. The Delhi Capitals are a team that have been doing well in recent years and with a title the Followers will increase multifold.
