It was a field day for Rihana and her Cricket fans yesterday. The megastar was seen sharing a light moment with the Indies player after their match against Sri Lanka, yesterday at Chester-Le-Street Cricket Stadium, Durham, England. Dressed in white and wearing sunglasses, pop singer Rihanna was spotted cheering for the Indies team and enjoying her drink in the bright sunshine of Durham.
Post-match, Rihanna was found in West Indies dressing room, in conversation with the Indies players. Chris Gayle, Universe Boss, seemed to be in high spirits and signed his bat for her.
It’s a Caribbean thing, Ask RiRi! @rihanna it was pleasure meeting you 🤗. Thanks for the cheers and support! May god continue to bless you 🙏🏿😊. I hope you take up the offer to come to my Birthday Party September 20th… https://t.co/zoIET2HpT2

Jason Holder, West Indies Captain, said, “It was great to see her here. I just want to personally thank her for coming out. It’s not easy for a celebrity to come down to Durham to watch the West Indies play but I’m sure the boys felt her presence in the stands. And she came down to the dressing room as well and met quite a few of the players, and that was also refreshing,”
Videos and photographs of the same were shared on the social media account of ICC World Cup and West Indies.
