RR’s Riyan Prag Celebrates The Victory With The Bihu Dance

The young player smashed a six on the second last ball when RR had needed 2 runs off the last two balls to win. And he celebrated the victory with Bihu dance.


Riyan Prag performed the Bihu dance to celebrate the 5-wicket stunning victory of his team Rajasthan Royals (RR) against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) during an Indian Premier League match at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Initially, Royals were struggling to chase the target of 159 runs set by SRH. They were in trouble after losing their first 5 wickets at the score of 85 in 12 overs. But then, Prag and Tewatia built a commendable unbeaten 85-runs-partnership and helped their team to win the match by 5 wickets.

“Love these situations. Whenever the team needs me, I put my hand up and raise to the occasion. That’s the Bihu dance, the traditional dance of Assam. Some of the Assamese boys were up there as well, had a bit of fun after the game,” Parag said after the match.
