Rajasthan Royals (RR) player Riyan Parag posted a tweet through his official social media account, which sparked a hilarious event later. The tweet “Khatam, tata, bye-bye # IPL2021 #iplcancel” was posted by Parag after BCCI and the IPL board indefinitely postponed the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on 4 May due to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases among franchise players and support staff. Parag was at the end of a fan memes festival after posting this tweet.
Fans referred to old Bollywood movies as they continued to troll RR’s performances this season.
