Riyan Parag's Emotional 'Orange Cap Moment' With Mother Has Fans In Awe. Watch | Cricket News

After his side’s six-wicket win over Mumbai Indians (MI) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match, Rajasthan Royals (RR) all-rounder Riyan Parag shared a heart-warming moment with his mother. Parag blitzkrieg left Mumbai Indians (MI) fooled as Rajasthan Royals (RR) sailed to their third consecutive win in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 with a six-wicket victory over the five-time champions at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday .

“No one loves you as much as your mother,” RR’s official message tweeted.

Riyan has had a tremendous turnaround in the IPL 2024. He has been promoted to bat at number four after years of failing to perform as a finisher. The young all-rounder faced trolls on social media for his performances in previous seasons but has eliminated them all with his attacking intentions and maturity.

In three matches, Riyan has scored 181 runs at an average of 181.00 and a strike rate of over 160, with two half-centuries. His best score is 84*. He is tied with Indian and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) star batsman Virat Kohli for the most points in IPL 2024, scoring 181 runs in three matches at an average of 90.50, with a strike rate of over 141. He has scored two half-centuries. , with the best score of 83*.

Last IPL season, Parag scored 78 runs in seven innings. In IPL 2022, his numbers were 183 runs in 14 innings. In 2021, he made 93 runs in 10 innings. These figures look deeply disappointing when you also look at his domestic cricket figures for Assam, where he is showing a more all-round side to him as a batsman.

In four matches of the Ranji Trophy 2023-2024, Parag made 378 runs in six innings at an average of 75.6, with two centuries and a fifty. His best score was 155.

Parag also took Assam to the semi-finals of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 competition and finished the tournament as the leading run-scorer with 510 runs at an average of 85, with seven half-centuries. He also took 11 wickets.

In the Deodhar Trophy, a 50-over tournament last year, Parag finished as the leading run-getter as he played for East Zone and took his team to the final. In five matches and five innings, Parag made 354 runs at an average of 88.50, with a strike rate of over 136. He scored two centuries and a fifty. Most of his scores came under pressure and he found himself driving his team out of trouble after losing early wickets or going through a collapse. He earned the title of ‘Player of the Tournament’ in the competition.

Coming to the match, RR, after winning the toss, chose to bowl first. Trent Boult (22/3) destroyed the MI top order in the powerplay to reduce it to 20/4. A 56-run partnership between skipper Hardik Pandya (34 in 21 balls, with six fours) and Tilak Varma (32 in 29 balls, with two sixes) briefly brought some order to the innings before MI suffered another collapse to end at 125/ 9 off 20 overs.

Yuzvendra Chahal (3/11) and Nandre Burger (2/32) bowled well for RR and rocked the MI batting line-up with regular wickets, never giving them a chance to breathe.

In the chase, RR lost openers Jos Buttler (13), Yashasvi Jaiswal (10) while skipper Sanju Samson could only make 12 in 10 balls. Reduced to 48/3 they found themselves in a difficult situation. But Riyan Parag pulled off another brilliant save and scored 54* in 39 balls, with five fours and three sixes, taking his side to a six-wicket win with 27 balls to spare.

Akash Madhwal (3/20) was the choice of the bowlers for MI.

Boult took home the ‘Player of the Match’ award.

Rajasthan are at the top of the points table with three wins in three matches, giving them a total of six points. Mumbai, on the other hand, are at the bottom and have lost all three matches so far.
