Twitter on April 24 went gaga over cricketer Riyan Parag’s unique ‘selfie’ celebration during the Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Youngster Riyan Parag, playing for the Rajasthan Royals, has been a poster boy for introducing the ‘Bihu’ celebration in the IPL last season. On April 24, the Assam cricketer was once again engaged in a unique celebration.
After completing a clean catch near the mid-wicket boundary to send KKR’s danger man Pat Cummins packing, Riyan brought out the new ‘selfie’ celebration. He was joined by his teammate Rahul Tewatia.
