The lockdown in most countries has already or is just about to complete a month. With little choice but to stay indoors, the Rajasthan Royals boys have moved on from just exercising to doing innovative things. From racing alongside Formula 1 drivers (virtually) to having a Counter Strike face-off, the boys are spending their time in many ways.
“I’m a full-time cricketer & a part-time Formula 1 driver.” These are Stokes’ words as he readied himself to partner with Red Bull Racing driver, Alex Albon. Stokes started off pretty decently during the Virtual Grand Prix. However, he was ‘caught in the slips’, the commentator mentioned. You must watch what happened.
Sanju Samson indulged in a Rajasthan Royals Instagram takeover, as he had a one-on-one with many fans. The Royals fielding coach, Dishant Yagnik & his daughter Dhyani joined Sanju and she almost took the show away from him for a few minutes. Sanju also had a few words in Malayalam for his fans in his home-state.
While Stokesy was screeching his tyres, Riyan Parag took on a CS:GO pro-athlete. You’ve watched him turn games around for us on the cricket field. You can watch Riyan in a different avatar.
The Royals Podcast series got underway, and we’ve had three guests so far. Ish Sodhi, who is the host has brought out the best of Shreyas Gopal, Steve Smith & Jos Buttler. If you have a whole evening free to yourself, these three podcasts should be worth the while.
Jaydev Unadkat couldn’t help but post two photos, which were quite contrasting given the situation he is in. He recently got engaged, and it must be quite frustrating for him to not spend some time with his fiancé.
Someone decided to make his fans put on the dancing shoes, by putting on the DJ’s himself. Jofra Archer played some tunes on a DJ console and they were quite groovy.
Mahipal Lomror’s actions were perhaps the cutest of them all. He gave his dad’s hair a solid trim. He jokingly reckons ‘If I’d done it for someone else, I would have been tipped.”
The Rajasthan Royals boys find new ways to keep themselves occupied and entertain fans. The Royals Podcast series will continue with a few more imminent Royals in the next couple of episodes. Stay home, stay safe and stay entertained.
