The 30th match of the Dream11 IPL 2020 is underway, with the Delhi outfit taking on the Rajasthan team. It was Shreyas Iyer who won the toss in Delhi vs Rajasthan, with the skipper electing to bat first. Jofra Archer made an impression on the first ball of the contest4, dismissing the in-form Delhi batsman Prithvi Shaw. However, it was the cricketer’s unique celebration which was loved by netizens online.
Jofra Archer dismissed the Delhi batsman with a peach of a delivery on the first ball of the match. Archer's quick delivery got the better of the Delhi batsman, with the ball taking the inside edge and crashing onto the stumps. However, it was Jofra Archer’s unique celebration that caught the attention of many, with the England bowler performing the ‘Bihu’ dance.
The celebration became famous when Rajasthan youngster Riyan Parag performed the ‘Bihu’ dance after guiding his side to victory in the last game. Pulling off a tough run chase, Riyan Parag was seen performing the Bihu dance on the pitch as he celebrated the victory. The Bihu dance is an indigenous folk-dance hailing from the state of Assam and forms an important part of Assamese culture.
After Jofra Archer imitated his teammate Riyan Parag and celebrated his wicket with the Bihu dance, many cricket fans took to Twitter to praise the 25-year-old. Several fans claimed that it was a proud moment to see a foreign cricketer adopting Indian culture, as they hailed Jofra Archer for celebrating with the Bihu dance. A section of fans also suggested that Jofra Archer’s unique celebration was the greatest moment of Dream11 IPL 2020.
