Watch: Jofra Archer celebrates first-ball wicket of Prithvi Shaw with Bihu dance

The Bihu dance clearly caught on in the Rajasthan Royals dressing room with Riyan Parag celebrating with the same steps in their last match.

Jofra Archer gave a brilliant start to Rajasthan Royals as he knocked off Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw in the first ball of the Indian Premier League match at the Dubai International Stadium.

The England cricketer bowled a quick inswinger that took the inside edge and crashed into the middle stump, removing Shaw for duck in the first ball of the match.

The Bihu dance clearly caught on in the Rajasthan Royals dressing room with Riyan Parag celebrating with the same steps in their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday at the Dubai International Stadium. Though Rajasthan initially struggled while chasing a target of 158, it was Rahul Tewatia and Parag’s 85-run partnership which ended their four-match losing streak. To celebrate their win, Parag danced some steps of the bihu dance, which is from Assam.
