Rajasthan Royals star Riyan Parag pleads with rivals for IPL playoff favour
Rajasthan Royals (RR) all-rounder Riyan Parag has pleaded with Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad to do them a favour in order to qualify for the playoffs.
Parag's young teammates and specialist batsmen Devdutt Padikkal [51 in 30 balls] and Yashasvi Jaiswal [50 in 36 balls] smashed half-centuries to help their side chase down a target of 188, doing so with only two balls to spare.
Now Royals will be banking on Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians to lose their final league games on Sunday, with the 21-year-old Parag taking to social media to plead with their opponents.
GT and SRH please help us out a little now🥺 #RRvsPBKS— Riyan Paragg (@ParagRiyan) May 19, 2023
Parag will be hoping his team qualifies for the next stage of the tournament so that he can try to add to his only half-century in the IPL [56 off 31 balls], scored against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2022.
