Wanindu Hasaranga of the RCB talks about his unique celebrations

In Royal Challengers Bangalore’s recent match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Wanindu Hasaranga was at his best. At the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai, the Sri Lankan leg-spinner made the ball talk with a four-wicket haul. RCB won by three wickets, opening their account on the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 points table, thanks to his brilliance.

Hasaranga, in particular, drew attention for his unique celebrations in addition to his on-field achievements. After taking wickets, he seemed to replicate Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr’s signature celebrations. Hasaranga talked up about his excitement after winning the Player-of-the-Match title against KKR, as well as revealed that Neymar is his favorite football player. The 24-year-old also stated that he does not put himself under too much stress while on the field.

It’s worth noting that Hasaranga won the huge auction for a hefty INR 10.75 crore. He has already proven that he is worth the money, taking five wickets in two games. When RCB face the Rajasthan Royals in their next match, the 24-year-old would like to continue his incredible run. On April 5, the match will take place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.
