- BCCI postpones IPL 2021 indefinitely
- Rajasthan Royal’s Riyan Parag posted a tweet shortly after which triggered a meme-fest
- Out of the total 61 matches for IPL 2021, only 29 were played
Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) player Riyan Parag posted a tweet through his official Twitter handle which started a hilarious meme-fest soon after. The tweet which read, “Khatam, tata, bye-bye #IPL2021 #iplcancel,” was posted by Parag shortly after BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) and the Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council indefinitely postponed the 14th edition of the cash-rich tournament on the 4th of May owing to the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases among the franchise players and the support staff members.
Parag was at the receiving end of the meme-fest by fans after he posted the tweet.
Fans took references from old Bollywood movies as they went on to troll RR’s performances in this season.
