‘Ego is still there in Riyan Parag but..’: Brad Hogg drops bomb-shell on RR batter

‘Ego is still there in Riyan Parag but..’: Brad Hogg drops bomb-shell on RR batter

Hogg discussed how Parag has learned to focus his energy and is more aware of the team's goals this year than his own, keeping his 'ego' aside.

Rajasthan Royals have got off to a flying start in IPL 2024. The Sanju Samson-led team are the only team in the tournament yet to be beaten. They sit at the top of the IPL 2024 table, with four wins in four games. They have some star players that have been performing like we are used to seeing them perform. Players like Sanju Samson, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jos Buttler or Yuzvendra Chahal have been delivering seamless performances. But Riyan Parag has been the standout player for this RR team, scoring tons of runs when not many expected him to.

Parag reborn

Ex-Aussie spinner Brad Hogg has been left impressed with Riyan Parag’s maturity this season as the Royals prepare for their encounter with the Gujarat Titans on Wednesday.

Hogg discussed how Parag has learned to focus his energy and is more aware of the team’s goals this year than his own in a YouTube podcast.

Parag believes in himself: Hogg

According to me, Rajasthan Royals are the best-balanced team in the tournament. I like the way how they have set their entire lineup. If Sandeep Sharma can get fully-fit as well, then he can add up as the sixth bowling option for them.

And I am really liking when I am seeing young (Riyan) Parag. He is the youngest player to hit a fifty in the history of IPL. I love his energy and I love the way he fields. I think he has really matured this year. Last year, I guess he had a bit of a strut on him. I don’t say this disrespectfully but I think he had a bit of ego last year. The ego is still there but it is in control. He believes in himself and he is now more worried about what he can do for the team rather than trying to seal his place in the team,” Hogg told NDTV during the podcast.
