Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia starred in Rajasthan Royals’ victory over SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday in Abu Dhabi. Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, joining hands to script a near improbable victory as Rajasthan Royals broke their four-match losing streak. Meanwhile, Parag taught Tewatia the dance step he did after hitting the winning runs.
Rajasthan Royals once again found themselves three down within the powerplay as their all three overseas batting heavyweights were back in the hut. The likes of Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, and Ben Stokes could not trouble the scores by much as the responsibility fell on the rest of the batsmen. Sanju Samson and Robin Uthappa began the repair work after which Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia added 85 in 7.5 overs to get the Royals over the line by five wickets. For his unbeaten knock of 45 off 28 balls, Tewatia received the man of the match while Riyan Parag remained not out at 42.
Rajasthan Royals next take on Delhi Capitals in Dubai on Wednesday where the former will continue to carry the momentum. Rahul Tewatia has turned out to be the find for Rajasthan Royals this season. The southpaw took the inaugural IPL champions to an improbable win two weeks ago against Kings XI Punjab in Sharjah. He smacked five sixes off Sheldon Cottrell when the Royals needed 51 off 18 deliveries. Tewatia could not be there to finish the game; however, the Royals chased down 224 successfully, the highest ever run-chase in the history of Indian Premier League.
Meanwhile, the traditional dance of Assam named Bihu became famous overnight when Riyan Parag did it after hitting Khaleel Ahmed’s ball for a six. Hence, the teenage prodigy taught the same to his batting partner or teammate too.
Below is the clip where Riyan Parag teaches the dance step:
