Twitter goes berserk over KL Rahul’s Dele Alli challenge after dismissing Joe Root of England
After the Kiki Challenge ruled the internet for a few days, it is time to make way for the Dele Alli Challenge. For those of you do not know, Dele Alli is a famous English footballer who plies his trade at Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur. Alli pulled of this unique celebration after scoring against Newcastle United on gameweek one of the Premier League.
The video of the celebration has gone viral and numerous footballers have uploaded videos trying to nail this simple yet confusing challenge.
Meanwhile, in the game of cricket, India are bossing England at the moment who need 521 runs to seal the series. But the Indians are in the pole position to make a comeback in the test series as England are unlikely to reach their target batting at 131/4. Among the wickets that fell, the most important was that of Joe Root and KL Rahul took a blinder to dismiss the English skipper.
But there was something more special than the catch. And it was nothing but Rahul’s celebration. Rahul nailed the Dele Alli challenge after he helped India to get rid of Joe Root and the video has taken the internet by storm.
