Social media is a funny world, from an ordinary person it can turn you into an overnight star with zillions of followers. After the much-hyped “In My Feelings” challenge which went viral at the speed of knots, it is now the turn of ‘Backpack Kid Dance Challenge’ which has caught the fancy of everyone around the world.
Hailed as one of the biggest pranksters in Indian cricket – Yuvraj Singh never shies away from pulling the leg of his fellow cricketers and friends. Recently he posted a video on Instagram where Bowler Ashish Nehra tries to perform backpack kid dance but instead gets schooled about the dance form by his son Arush Nehra.
Backpack Kid is a 15-year-old from Lawrenceville, Georgia. His real name is Russell Horning. He posted a funny dance on Instagram that went viral. He now boasts a million Instagram followers.

Nehra has retired from all forms of international cricket and is now found donning the commentator’s hat in the live matches. Whereas, Yuvraj is out of the national reckoning after his string of below-par performances for Team India.
The Indian cricket team are currently playing a three-match T20I series against West Indies. The men in blue ended a four-match winless run against the West Indies with a five wickets victory that came on the back of debutant Krunal Pandya’s flourish and Dinesh Karthik’s poised on Sunday. Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav (3/13) led the Indian bowlers’ fine show to restrict West Indies to 109 for eight after stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma opted to to field on a dew-laden Eden Gardens. India responded well with the pacers giving them a fine start after Umesh Yadav dismissed Denesh Ramdin in the third over.
Playing their first match at home without the inspirational Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India were 45 for four in eight overs, leaving their fragile middle order exposed. But the ‘local boy’ Karthik, who leads Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL, stayed calm in his 31 not out from 34 balls (3×4, 1×6) to steer India home with 13 balls to spare.
Hardik’s brother, Krunal, hit the winning boundary off Keemo Paul in the 18th over. The new Pandya smashed 21 off nine balls. This was India’s first win against the World T20 champions since 2014, spanning five matches.
The 21-year-old debutant pacer Oshane Thomas (2/21) gave Windies a flying start, removing both the openers — Rohit Sharma (six) and Shikhar Dhawan (three) — for 16 inside the third over.
