Yuzvendra Chahal endorses golf skills of Rajasthan Royals teammate Riyan Parag
Riyan Parag may be known for hitting sixes and picking up crucial wickets, but the Rajasthan Royals’ all-rounder has other hidden skills in his arsenal. On Monday, Riyan was seen playing golf at the Oxford Golf Resort in Pune ahead of his team’s IPL game against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Riyan shared an Instagram Story on Monday in which he could be seen enjoying a round of golf. He also mentioned that the course at Oxford Golf Resort is the best course he has ever played on. He further revealed that his Rajasthan teammate Yuzvendra Chahal also endorses his expertise in golf.
During the mega auction for IPL 2022, the 20-year-old all-rounder was drafted by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 3.80 crore. Riyan is yet to produce an impressive show in the current season of IPL. So far he has scored 48 points at an average of 9.60.
In top class cricket, he made his debut in 2017 while playing for Assam against Hyderabad in the Ranji Trophy. In the IPL, he made his debut in 2019 for Rajasthan Royals.
In IPL 2022, third-placed Rajasthan Royals will face Royal Challengers Bangalore today, in Pune. Rajasthan have been in fine form recently and will be aiming to extend their winning streak to three when they take on Bangalore. In their last game against the Delhi Capitals, Sanju Samson’s men put on a terrific batting show to secure a 15-run win.
Batting first, Rajasthan posted a mammoth tally of 222 runs losing two wickets in 20 overs. Their England striker Jos Buttler slammed his third IPL 2022 century by scoring 116 carries on just 65 balls. His innings consisted of 9 limits and as many as six. In response, Delhi came pretty close to victory but ultimately could only manage 207 carries in 20 overs.
On the other hand, Bangalore will enter the game against Rajasthan after suffering a humiliating nine-wicket defeat to Hyderabad. Battling first, Bangalore were grouped for 68 runs in 16.1 overs. In response, Hyderabad scored the winning runs with 72 balls remaining and only lost one wicket.
