Riyan Parag gives befitting reply to critics with gritty 56 as he leads RR to win over RCB

April 27, 2022 / 12:12 AM IST

It is not easy to perform in crunch situations, especially when the top-order has fallen cheaply. Especially when the scorer of three hundreds, Jos Buttler, has fallen for single digit for the first time in the tournament.

More so if the previous outings in the tournament have not fetched enough runs. Like in the case of Riyan Parag, Rajasthan Royal’s middle-order batsman, whose scores in his earlier five visits to the crease were 12, 5, 8, 18 and 5.

On Tuesday in Pune, the 20-year-old right-handed batsman from Guwahati notched up his highest IPL score – 56 not out in 30 balls with three fours and four sixes – to take RR from a dicey 68 for four to a match-winning total of 144 for eight.

Parag made his intentions clear that he was not going to let go loose deliveries unpunished. Though he did not take risks, he played his strokes with confidence and cleared the boundaries with ease. For his first attacking shots, Parag slammed left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed for a six over long-on and followed it with a four straight above the bowler’s head.
