IPL 2021: Riyan Parag criticizes himself after the defeat against PKBS and the tweet goes viral
The Guwahati born cricketer Riyan Parag grabbed the headlines for his all-around performance against the Rahul-led Punjab Kings. He did really we in the first game by showing off his trick with the ball as he bowled the ball in Kedar Jadhav's style to the "Universe Boss" Chris Gayle.
The on-filed umpire warned him after the delivery and bowled the rest of the balls in his style and got rid of the dangerous Jamaican batsman who returned to the pavilion with the numbers of 40.
During the 18th over of the game, the youngster did well on the field as he grabbed a stunning catch to dismiss the dangerous Deepak Hooda who came out of the syllabus.
With the bat, Riyan Parag added 25 runs from just 11 deliveries that included a boundary and three sixes to his name. After the completion of the game, Riyan Parag criticised himself by posting a tweet on his official Twitter account and deleted the tweet.

Sanju Samson's heroics in the second innings
The stage was well set for middle-order but Deepak Hooda came out of the syllabus as he went to smash 64 off just 28 deliveries. He destroyed the RR bowling attack and smacked the bowlers all around the park.
With the help of skipper KL Rahul's destructive knock of 91 off just 50 deliveries, Punjab posted a huge total of 221 on their board. While chasing a massive target, Rajasthan lost their top order cheaply.
However, Samson is still giving hopes to his team. Ben Stokes had been dismissed for a duck as the English cricketer miss-timed the ball and was grabbed by the bowler Mohammed Shami. Sanju Samson took charge from there and started to respect the bowlers all around the park.
He didn't get good support from the other end as Jos Buttler, Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag have been sent back to the dressing room by Punjab bowlers with the numbers 25, 23 and 25 respectively.
In the end, Rajasthan Royals needed 5 from the last ball and was hit straight to the fielder by Sanju Samson. His terrific innings of 119 had been ended on a losing cause.
