‘Will Play For India Very Soon’, Uncapped IPL Star Predicts His Future

The young and dynamic batter of Rajasthan Royals, Riyan Parag has won many hearts with his improved performance in the IPL 2024. Parag has a belief that he will play for India very soon and it will be a great achievement for him.

In IPL 2024, Parag finished as the third best scorer in the tournament with 573 runs in 16 games with an average of 149.21. Not only this, he was one of the key members who played RR to make it into the playoffs.

Parag has been a very average player since his tenure with Rajasthan Royals, however, the management kept an eye on him and did not let him go even after his continuous failure. However, after working on himself, Parag  came with a different approach and scored a lot of runs while batting at number four position.

Parag is confident about playing for the National Team, showing peak self-belief when he made the statement.

“At some point, you’ll have to take me, right? So that is my belief, I’m going to play for India. I don’t really care when.”

“When I was not scoring runs – I said this in an interview as well that I am going to play for India.”

“That is me believing in myself. That is not me being arrogant. That is what my plan was with my dad, when I started playing cricket when I was like 10-years-old. We were going to play for India regardless of anything.”

“Whether it’s the next tour, whether it’s a tour in six months, whether it’s a tour in one year… I don’t really put my thought behind when I should play. That is the selector’s job, that is other people’s job,” Parag said.

After the T20 World Cup, India will take against Zimbabwe in 5 match T20Is, followed by 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. Young players like Parag, Harshit Rana, and Abhishek Sharma might get a chance in the Indian team.
