Wicketkeeper batsman Anuj Rawat, who plays for Delhi in domestic cricket took center-stage in the video and introduced left-arm pacer Kuldip Yadav to the rest of the Royals squad. Rawat said, "I am extremely delighted to welcome my Delhi teammate Kuldip Yadav to the Rajasthan Royals family. Kuldip is definitely gonna make everyone's head spin this year. As much as I know Kuldip, he's a bit shy guy. "

Anuj then called Kuldip to the front to introduce him. It was at this moment that Rahul Tewatia intervened and cheekily said, "Bro, bulara hai ya dhamkara hai (Bro, are you calling or threatening him?)", prompting laughter from the other players.
