RCB’s superb tactical display while bowling first struck Rajasthan Royals hard and collapsed the batting order. Had it not been Riyan Parag who spent quality time on the crease when the team collapsed, the Rajasthan Royals would have been out for a meager score. Riyan Parag’s fifty came off at a time when the non-striker’s end kept vacating. The 20-years-old, however, kept rotating the strike and accelerated runs on the board.
A match earlier, ever celebrator of IPL events, netizens kept questioning Parag’s place in the playing XI. Riyan Parag who batted down the order did not have good records to his name in the league before the match against RCB. Fans soon flipped the table and hailed Parag’s efforts to lead RR to a respectable total on a bouncy pitch that is troubling batsmen with hard-hitting pace and swing.
