Rajasthan Royals‘ all-rounder Riyan Parag stole the show during the IPL 2022 match last night with his stunning knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Riyan Parag hasn’t been at his best in the ongoing season and has only registered 104 runs in eight fixtures. However, he silenced his critics with the bat last night as he played a crucial knock of 56* runs off 31 balls, smashing 3 fours and 4 sixes. Riyan Parag with the bat and the Royals bowlers helped the side register their 6th win of the season to help them jump to the top of the IPL 2022 points table.
Apart from his performances, Riyan Parag stole the limelight after he was involved in a heated exchange with Harshal Patel.
The controversy took place after the 20th over, where Harshal bowled and Parag smacked four and two sixes. The 20-year-old ended the stunning innings with a maximum over cow corners, making it 18 runs off the over. After the innings, Parag could be seen walking off the field, this is when he turned around and started having a heated altercation with Harshal Patel, who was later stopped by members of the RR support staff.
The video of the same has been going viral on the internet. Watch the video:

Meanwhile, later the scenes after the game weren’t great as Harshal Patel didn’t shake hands with Riyan Parag. An excited Parag had come forward to shake hands with his counterpart but Harshal just refused to do so and just walked past him.
Even Parag was shocked to see the reaction of Harshal Patel and the video of the same has been going viral on the internet. Fans were also shocked to see him walk past like that. Watch the video:
