The ongoing match between Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium is proving to be an exciting one for the fans like any other IPL match. All-rounder Riyan Parag, who is known for his batting exploits, was on the thick of the things with the ball as well. Riyan Parag, asked to deliver his leg-spin by captain Sanju Samson, attempted a Kedar Jadhav-like delivery.
The incident from Kedar Jadhav occurred in the third ball of the ninth over when Riyan Parag bowled an awkward delivery to Chris Gayle. The Jamaican left-handed batsman remained unfazed by it and nudged it to long-off to take a single. Parag was successful in dismissing the dangerman for 40 a couple of balls later when he holed out to long-on to Ben Stokes, who took an incredible low catch.
It is the only bowler the youngster has bowled so far in the match, finishing with figures of 1-7-1. Nevertheless, the Assam-born cricketer’s role would be crucial when the Rajasthan Royals come out to bat in the second innings as they will have a mammoth target to chase down. KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda have currently added 83 in quick time and have kept the Punjab Kings in track for more than 200.
