It is one of the most anticipated sports with a large viewers pool and is considered “flagship event of the international cricket calendar” by the ICC.
A match between West Indies and Sri Lanka was held on Monday, 1st July 2019, at The Riverside Durham, Chester-le-Street, England. The heart wrenching match ended with Sri Lanka winning by 23 runs.
Despite the defeat, the Umbrella Superstar was seen supporting the ‘Men in Maroon’. She proudly held the West Indies flag while sitting in the audience, cheering for her team. Her appearance in the stadium was a surprise for most of the people as tweets like, “Never thought we’d say these words but…Rihanna is in Durham watching cricket” and “Rihanna really out here watching the Cricket World Cup and supporting West Indies”, started flooding the internet.
The singer slash actress was seen wearing an all-white apparel. She wore white pants with a fitted crop top and an oversized jacket, looking stunning as always.
