Don’t even want to watch T20 World Cup, says Riyan Parag

Parag's decision to skip the T20 World Cup as a spectator might raise eyebrows, but it underscores his laser focus on his own development.

Riyan Parag, the outspoken all-rounder for the Rajasthan Royals, has sparked conversation with his unconventional approach to the ongoing T20 World Cup. Known for his honesty and unwavering self-belief, Parag recently made a bold statement when asked to predict the top four teams in the tournament.

No Time for Predictions for Riyan Parag

Instead of offering his predictions, Riyan Parag bluntly declared his lack of interest in watching the World Cup at all: “It will be a biased answer [prediction on top four teams],” he explained at TRS podcast, “but to be very honest I don’t even want to watch the World Cup.” His focus, it seems, lies elsewhere.

Riyan Parag ambitions

Parag aspires to represent India on the biggest stage, and his lack of interest in the current World Cup stems from his desire to be part of future editions. “When I will play the World Cup, I will think about top four and all of that,” he said, highlighting his long-term goals. This unwavering belief in his own abilities is a recurring theme for the young cricketer.

Breakout IPL 2024 fuels confidence

Parag’s recent success in the IPL season has undoubtedly bolstered his confidence. After a string of underwhelming seasons with the Rajasthan Royals, he exploded onto the scene this year, amassing an impressive 573 runs at a near 150 strike rate batting at number four. This remarkable turnaround has many believing he is on the right track.

Parag’s decision to skip the T20 World Cup as a spectator might raise eyebrows, but it underscores his laser focus on his own development. While others analyze the current tournament, Parag is busy preparing for his own future in international cricket. Will his dedication translate into a coveted spot on Team India?
