Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner was far from happy with the Riyan Parag victory dance. The incident took place at the end of the match between SRH and Rajasthan Royals on Sunday.
Chasing down a target of 158 runs set by SRH, RR managed to win the nail-biting contest as Parag and Rahul Tewatia batted well. The two put on an absolute show under pressure after the RR top order slumped.
The duo of Tewatia and Parag batted brilliantly and helped their side taste victory in a nail biter. In the last over, RR had to score eight runs in six balls.
Khaleel Ahmed bowled a high full toss to Parag in the penultimate ball of the last over, which he dispatched for a huge six. Right after the shot, the youngster celebrated with his signature Bihu dance move.
Parag, who hails from Assam, is well known for his dancing celebration. He has done that in the past as well after taking a wicket. This time, however, David Warner seemed miffed at the batsman for his post-match dance.
Warner pointed towards Parag as he looked least impressed with his celebratory dance. The Aussie’s reaction was caught on camera and went viral on the social media platforms.
