In light of Riyan Parag’s recent successes in the domestic circuit, veteran Indian all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin has nothing but respect for the young player. For his state squad Assam, Parag has been in outstanding form. At the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy, he just made history by becoming the first batter in T20 history to score seven consecutive half-centuries.
In making 155 from 87 balls, the 22-year-old hit 12 sixes and 11 fours, recording the second-fastest century in Ranji Trophy history. In the history of the Ranji Trophy, Rishabh Pant holds the record for the fastest century. Against Jharkhand in 2016, he reached the milestone in just 48 balls.
Fans have frequently lambasted Parag for his subpar performances in the Indian Premier League (IPL), even though he has put on an amazing all-around display in the home circuit. Declaring that Parag “is still a young player that is getting better,” Ashwin chastised his detractors.
Many people believe that Riyan Parag is an overhyped cricket player based only on his IPL exploits. Sometimes we forget that he is still a child. He’s still a young player, but his skills are improving. According to Ashwin on his YouTube channel, Parag scored 155 runs for Assam versus Chattisgarh in the opening Ranji Trophy match of the current season. He also made major contributions in the Syed Mushtaq Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy.
Ravichandran Ashwin went on to highlight how Parag has been leading Assam from the front, particularly in situations where his teammates have fallen short.
Regarding Parag’s IPL career. He has participated in 54 games thus far and amassed 600 runs at an average of 16.22. In the IPL he has scored the best of 56* runs and smashed two half-centuries.
