Star aligned at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street on Monday as pop star Rihanna met with the members of the Windies team after their ICC World Cup 2019 group stage match against Sri Lanka. Windies may have lost the match by 23 runs but self proclaimed ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle seemed to be in high spirits when he met Rihanna in the dressing room. Gayle’s teammates too met with the pop icon and presented a signed bat to her.
Rihanna’s presence failed to lift the side as they succumbed to their sixth defeat of the tournament against Sri Lanka. Nicholas Pooran slammed a sensation ton in the chase but it went in vain as the ‘Islanders’ kept their cool to win the match by 23 runs.
Rihanna, 31, was last month named the world’s richest female musician by Forbes magazine. In May, she launched a groundbreaking partnership with LVMH to launch a luxury fashion brand based in Paris that will make ready-to-wear clothes, shoes and accessories.
