English cricketer Jofra Archer took cricket fans by surprise after he broke into a celebratory jig with a few steps of Assamese folk dance Bihu during an IPL game on October 14.

Celebrating the wicket of Shaw, Archer did a few steps of Bihu which left the fans pleasantly surprised.

Parag's celebratory jig 

Archer picked the folk dance skill from his IPL teammate Riyan Parag who took the internet by storm with his Bihu celebratory dance a few days earlier. In a match against Hyderabad, Parag hit Khaleel Ahmed for a six on the penultimate ball of the last over to win the game by five wickets in a thrilling turn around. Parag, a native of Assam, showed off his Bihu skills after hitting the winning runs for the team.
