Players get a lot of love and support from fans around the world both on and off the field. Recently, Rajasthan Royals’ pacer Trent Boult was seen doing a very heartwarming gesture when he gave his jersey to a young fan after Qualifier 2, despite having a barrier between them in the stadium as well.
However, they had a seven-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday in Qualifier 2 of IPL 2022. And, now they will take on Gujarat Titans in the final on Sunday with the aim to lift the title, which Rajasthan last won in the inaugural edition (2008). After winning the Qualifier 2, veteran speedster Trent Boult, who returned impressive figures of 4-0-28-1 in the contest, was seen going towards the dressing room but a young fan came running to him and he gave his jersey to him, who requested him for it as well.
But, there was a net between them, and Boult made sure that the young boy could get the jersey, the young boy was seen happy and even posed for a picture with a smile on his face after wearing it as well. However, the video, which was shared by the Royals’ official Twitter handle, went viral in no time. “How can you not love Trent Boult? 😍 Watch him make a young fan’s day after #RRvRCB,” they posted with this caption.

After the win, Sanju Samson said: “It was tough (after a loss in the last game), but we are used to bouncing back in the tournament. In IPL it’s very normal that you go ups and downs throughout the tournament. We lost a few games, we knew how to come back and we did really well. The wicket was a bit sticky and was helping the fast bowlers a bit, it had really good bounce and was easier playing the spinners. We closed the innings really well, having DK and Maxi at the end we knew what they could do but having belief and composure in our skills is what got us through. It (winning the toss) made it easier to win this game, toss plays a huge role and I think the wicket played completely different in the first and second innings.”
“This is his (Obed McCoy) first IPL, he is very calm and composed and backs his strengths and we really trust him to do well. Very grateful to have someone like Jos, and the way he is batting, touch-wood, we have one more game to go. I was very young and it was the first IPL season and I remember playing an under-16 game somewhere in Kerala and I remember watching the last game with my friends and remember that last run where Shane Warne and Sohail Tanvir hit the run and they were running, it was a very vague memory which I have,” he concluded.
