3 fifties in 5 matches: Riyan Parag takes IPL 2024 with a storm, second in orange cap list

Riyan Parag had two IPL fifties prior to this season. However, he has already racked up three half-centuries in five IPL 2024 encounters.

Riyan Parag, the young Rajasthan Royals dasher, has finally come of age in IPL 2024. After several seasons of promise but limited output, Parag is having a breakout year, hammering three fifties in just five matches for his team.

His latest heroics came on April 10th in Jaipur against the Gujarat Titans. Parag played a crucial knock, smashing a brilliant half-century (76) to propel the Royals forward. This fifty adds to his already impressive tally of two previous fifties this season.

Rajasthan were in a spot of bother, losing both Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler inside the powerplay. However, Riyan Parag calmed the things down for the hosts as he not only stabilized RR’s innings but also operated at a phenomenal strike rate of over 158.

Despite the twin threat of Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed, Parag batted with composure and kept the run-scoring ticking. He found boundaries on regular junctures, smashing a total of three boundaries and five lusty maximums.

With his flamboyant knock, Parag has shot his way to second on the Orange Cap leaderboard. He now has a total of 261 runs at an astronomical average and strike rate of 87.00 and 158.18 respectively.
