This is an exciting time for India’s hopes. The Indian team management aims to expand the pool of players from which they will shortlist a team for the ICC Men’s T20. World Cup 2022 is to be played in Australia later this year. A group of senior stars have been rested from the ongoing five-match series against South Africa at home and in their place, several uncapped players have been included in the squad to give them a chance to claim their own. a regular place.
Whereas any cricketer worth his salt. will swoon at the opportunity to be included in the list of India Likely, Riyan Parag won’t be there for now.
why do you ask?
Because Parag, who went on to become the U-19 World Cup at just 16, thinks he hasn’t done enough to be counted among those playing for India.
In Parag’s own words, unless he sees his team win six-seven matches in the same tournament, the 20-year-old will not be happy if his name is also considered for a possible India call-up.
Winning matches (for my team). I did that in a couple of matches but it’s not enough.” thank you game Asked what he thinks will take him closer to fulfilling his dream of India.
“If I can win six-seven matches for my team in a tournament, then I will be counting. Right now, I would also not like if my name comes up in the probable list for the Indian team. I just don’t deserve it. In the coming season, my confidence will increase if I can guide my team to more wins,” he said.
During IPL 2022, Parag played for Rajasthan Royals in every game as he made it to the final. However, he scored just 183 runs including a half-century.
However, a big reason for this is that Parag is the designated finisher for RR and since he bats at the bottom of the batting order, it leaves less time for the youngster to organize and deliver deliveries, meaning that he has to start hitting. ball one.
But Parag doesn’t mind his batting position and he really wants to be that M S Dhoni Which firmly establishes the role of a finisher while batting in those places.
“Definitely happy with my batting position. However, I am not happy with the way I batted. I want to own that 6-7 spot. If you look around, the only name that will come to your mind is MS Dhoni, who has established the role of a finisher. I am getting closer to it, trying to learn and hopefully be able to apply all my experience from next year onwards,” he said.
with IPL 2022 Now turned in history, Parag is now focusing on playing domestic cricket where he represents Assam. “Again, I have to prepare for the home season. It doesn’t matter if one or two seasons are good. You have to do consistently well in the domestic circuit, then be able to play in the IPL and then for India. The target is to do well in the domestic season and in the IPL.
