Despite being a natural right-hander, Rajasthan Royals (RR) all-rounder Riyan Parag’s is working on bowling left-arm spin to add to his extensive repertoire of variations.
During the Deodhar Trophy, Parag revealed it during a talk with BCCI.tv. The East Zone’s 21-year-old off-spinner, who has taken two and four wicket hauls in four games, has been in outstanding form with the ball during the competition.
In the competition, just five bowlers have taken more victims than his nine, which have occurred at an average of 15.77.
“I bowl pretty much everything,” he remarked. I’m even practising my left-arm spin. I bowl every ball that comes my way.
Despite bowling a little over 26 overs in the IPL’s four seasons, Parag views himself as a “proper all-rounder”
“Even in the domestic season, combining all the formats, I bowled like 350 overs,” he claimed. Although I didn’t bowl in the IPL, I did bowl 350 overs during the domestic season and claimed 40 wickets overall, and that’s what’s visible here.
Parag has also played quite well with the bat. He had 259 runs, two centuries, and was in fourth place going into the final on Thursday. His average of 86.33 is the highest among players with at least two matches and more than 100 runs.
Even when I’m angry, I can let it out on the golf course, says Riyan Parag‘s
The young man also discussed how playing golf and playing video games online had helped his career. He described cricket as a “high-pressure” and “tough” sport and claimed that his two hobbies allowed him to decompress and even control his emotions.
“I believe that playing golf and playing online games have greatly aided me in taking my mind off the game. Even in my anger, I can vent by playing golf rather than cricket. My rage will be gone after five hours of gaming, and I will be able to start enjoying myself. In order to focus again and learn from my mistakes, I need to entirely remove myself from the game.
The Deodhar Trophy final will begin at 1:30 IST on Thursday with East Zone taking versus South.
