R Ashwin Praised These 2 Batters After The Elimination Of RCB From IPL 2024

The legendary off-spinner of Rajasthan Royals has praised the young and dynamic batter of RR, Riyan Parag for his impressive batting throughout the IPL 2024 edition. In a challenging chase of 173 runs, Parag kept his cool and played a crucial knock of 34 runs off 22 balls.

Riyan Parag got a good support from the West Indian cricketer Shimron Hetymyer who scored 26 runs off 14 balls. Not only this, Rovman Powell added 16 runs off 8 balls and sealed the match for RR.

After the loss, RCB has been eliminated from the playoffs and now Rajasthan Royals will face Pat Cummins led Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second eliminator at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, on May 24th.

Riyan Parag surpassed Rishabh Pant to become the player with the most runs in a single IPL season playing at number four. Pant scored 547 runs in IPL 2018 while Parag now has 567 runs.

Praising the Indian batter on “Jio Cinema”, R Ashwin said,”My expectation out of Riyan Parag is really high. And I would say he’s actually missed out on closing games down. And that’s something that I always tell Riyan and Yashasvi. Because I think they are top class players and you’re just seeing their silver lining, you’re not seeing entire diet. That’s why I’m very excited for this group of players.”

Ashwin also praised Sanju Samson and said,”With Sanju, if you ask them honestly, he would have been playing a little selfish, but he’s striking at 165 and that’s exactly what we need from Sanju Samson this year and, so happy for him. I’m very glad that he’s made it to the Indian World Cup side as well. Uh, it’s a great group to be around.”
