R Ashwin defends Rajasthan Royals youngster after stellar domestic performances
Ravichandran Ashwin defended his RR teammate Riyan Parag, who has been inconsistent in the Indian Premier League (IPL) despite being immensely talented. Parag has been making waves in the domestic circuit lately, doing heavy lifting for Assam, his state side. It helped Ashwin defend him.
“Riyan Parag is frequently criticised as an overhyped cricketer after just seeing his IPL performances,” stated Ashwin on his YouTube channel. “We forget that he's a youngster sometimes. He is still a young player who is getting better. Parag made useful contributions in the Syed Mushtaq Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy and slammed 155 for Assam against Chattisgarh in the first match of the ongoing Ranji Trophy season.”
Ashwin further talked about Parag’s magnificent 155-run knock in 87 balls, where he hit 11 fours and 12 sixes. He praised Parag for battling alone when his teammates lost their wickets early.
“He scored 155 off 87 balls. He didn't play for the sake of playing T20 cricket. He was pushed into that situation. All the batters on the other end fell like flies, and he took charge of his own hands and played such a knock.”
