Cricket is the most followed sport in India by some distance. People- young and old- follow the sport with utmost passion and dedication. While almost every fan dreams of getting to meet their favourite cricketer, not everyone is as lucky as 13-year-old Aman. The young boy had Riyan Parag, the all-rounder from his favourite Indian Premier League franchise Rajasthan Royals, pay a surprise visit to his home.
The inaugural IPL champions, who are known for their social media game, even shared a video of Riyan's visit to the super fan's house and his priceless reaction all of which was captured on camera. "😱 What do you get to be the first Junior Super Royal? 📹 Spoiler - You’ll wish to be the next one! 🥺 #RoyalsFamily | #HallaBol | @ParagRiyan," the video was captioned.
The video shows how Riyan surprises Aman and goes to spend some time at the "Junior Super Royal's" house. He not only sees his paintings and collectable but even acknowledges the fact that he has the painting of the "GOAT" Virat Kohli. Later when Aman was quizzed whether he knew Bihu dance and had seen him do it on the cricket field, the teenager answered in affirmative following which the two of them did some Bihu together.
Here is the video:
Later, the Assam cricketer even gifted Aman a signed Royals merchandise which made the day of the little fan. As far as IPL 2021 is concerned, Rajasthan Royals are currently placed fifth with three wins and four defeats from seven matches. The Sanju Samson-led side would be determined to secure a place in the Playoffs and then try and go for the win which they haven't tasted since the inaugural season. IPL 2021 is resuming on September 19.
As far as Riyan is concerned, he has scored 78 runs in the 7 matches of IPL 2021 so far. Although he has played a few impressive knocks for the franchise in his stint with them, he would also like to be more consistent with the bat as his average of 19.50 does not do justice to his potential. He was even tried with the ball in hand and has scalped a wicket in the season already.
