“I Blocked Out The Outside Noise, I Was Not Talking To Many People” – Riyan Parag

Ryan Parag was a part of the Indian team that won the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand in 2018. He was considered one of the country’s future stars after showing glimpses of his talent in the IPL after being signed by the Rajasthan Royals. He was retained by the franchise for two seasons before being bought back for INR 3.80 crore. However, he failed to perform consistently.

The Assam all-rounder believes that social media trolling and criticism have only motivated him to grow and develop in his game. The 21-year-old has been impressive in the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy, scoring 552 runs at an average of 69 and a strike rate of 123.21 with three centuries and a fifty, as well as taking 10 wickets. The all-rounder helped Assam reach the semi-final stage of the tournament.

“To be honest I have been putting in the work for the last few years and haven’t been achieving the results I wanted to but this year I guess I was more focused, I blocked out the outside noise, I was not talking to many people and was focussing on what I had and the task which was at hand. Season’s not over yet but it has been very decent so far.”

Riyan Parag finished fifth in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022–23 list of the highest run scorers. Tamil Nadu batter N Jagadeesan is at the top with 830 runs in eight matches. Ruturaj Gaikwad, who had a dream season, finished second with 660 runs.
