Bajan pop superstar Rihanna turned out to support the West Indies during the International Cricket Council (ICC) 2019 World Cup in England and the men’s cricket team couldn’t be happier with her appearance.

The Windies, who were playing their final group game against Sri Lanka on Monday, July 1, fought valiantly at the Riverside Ground in front of thousands of fans – one of which was the ‘Needed Me’ hitmaker.

“It’s a pleasure to meet you”

— Chris Gayle to Rihanna

After the game, Rihanna went to the locker room, where she was greeted by a beaming Jamaican star all-rounder Chris Gayle.
