Riyan Parag Creates World Record, Becomes First Cricketer To Achieve This Milestone In T20 Cricket

The young batter of Rajasthan Royals Riyan Parag has been playing fantastic cricket for Assam in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

On Friday, October 27, he made a historic mark in the world of cricket by becoming the first player ever to achieve six consecutive half-centuries in T20 cricket. He accomplished this remarkable feat with an unbeaten 57 runs from 33 balls against the Kerala team.

Entering the crease when the score was at 48/3, Parag played a crucial role in stabilizing the innings and then accelerated in the latter stages, smashing four sixes. This performance allowed Assam to secure a victory with just three balls to spare at the Sharad Pawar Indoor Cricket Academy in Mumbai on Friday.

Before this, his 37-ball 72 had propelled him to join the likes of Virender Sehwag, Devon Conway, Hamilton Masakadza, Kamran Akmal, Jos Buttler, David Warner, and Wayne Madsen, all of whom had previously scored five half-centuries in consecutive innings.

His match-winning performance against Kerala cemented his name in the annals of cricket history.
