The Kiwi gentleman Trent Boult bestowed his jersey, to a young fan at the stadium. The left-arm pacer brought in this adorable gesture after the Royals’ game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), yesterday (May 27).
RR posted the video of Boult’s act on their official social media handles. In the video, Boult can be seen taking off his jersey and giving it to the young kid, in the stands. While, the kid hilariously, offered his jersey back before Boult said that he didn’t need it.
Boult asked one of the Royals’ family members to pass the jersey, who then passed it to the young fan. After getting Boult’s jersey, the boy seemed extremely delighted and wore it right there.

Besides, Boult, individually, has had more than a decent run in the IPL 2022. The 32-year-old has played 15 games for RR this year and has picked up 15 wickets at a relatively reasonable economy of 8.24. With his raw pace this season, Boult has certainly led the RR pace unit.
