Rajasthan Royals Photoshopped Riyan Parag As “Riyan Malinga”

Rajasthan Royals Twitter handle is known for its witty and humorous tweets. They came up with one such funny tweet in which they shared a photoshopped image of Riyan Parag, on 16 April 2021 after he bowled with a sidearm action against the Delhi Capitals a day before. Riyan Parag bowled a sidearm delivery to Rishabh Pant in the 13th over of the first innings, which foiled the latter’s attempt at a boundary.


Riyan bowled a similar delivery to Chris Gayle in Rajasthan Royal’s first clash against Punjab Kings. He came to bowl the 10th over of the first innings when Gayle and KL Rahul had already played a few big hits. On his third ball of the over, he bowled with a sidearm action as Chris Gayle is strong again leggies.

Following these two incidents, The RR Twitter handle tweeted a photoshopped image of Riyan Parag with the curly hairs of the legendary Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga who was known for his sidearm action. They also came up with a humorous caption for this photoshopped image of Riyan Parag by quoting the tweet as:

@mipaltan fans will say this is photoshopped.

The fans came up with some equally humorous replies to this tweet by Rajasthan Royals. Here are some of the best fan reactions to this tweet:

A few fans replied by combining the names of Riyan Parag and Lasith Malinga. Two of them were Riyalinga and Lasith Parag.

In another tweet, a fan replied, “Malinga got a competitor,” to which Rajasthan Royals admin replied, “Indeed.”

Interestingly, a fan tweeted his own version of a photoshopped image of Lasith Malinga in which he coloured his hair pink. He captioned this image as, “Lasith Malinga supporting @rajasthanroyals with his hair colour.”
