Rihanna turned up at Cricket World Cup to watch West Indies play

Rihanna has made a surprise appearance in the north-east of England to cheer on the West Indies at the Cricket World Cup.

The multi Grammy Award-winning singer joined spectators to watch the Sri Lanka v West Indies at The Riverside Durham.

She enjoyed a drink in the sunshine and smiled and laughed, despite an uninspired performance by the West Indies in the ICC Cricket World Cup group stage match in Chester-le-Street.

Sri Lanka shrugged off their World Cup disappointment as a century from Avishka Fernando carried them to 338 for six.

She remained in good spirits as she watched a lacklustre fielding display from the Windies, who won the toss under cloudy skies in blustery conditions, only for Sri Lanka openers Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera to lay a solid foundation.

The Umbrella singer looked summery in white, with a light jacket and sunglasses and a gold cross necklace, with her hair in long red braids.

The superstar also posed with a large West Indies flag in a photo shared by the International Cricket Council.

A post on Twitter said: “Look who’s at Sri Lanka v West Indies to Rally ’round the West Indies! Watch out for Rihanna’s new single, Shut Up And Cover Drive.”
