Riyan Parag has always attracted the attention of the fans through his antics. Last year, his Bihu dance celebration after winning the match for Rajasthan Royals, attracted the attention of all the fans. This year. his selfie celebration with Rahul Tewatia after taking a catch became the talking points among the fans. He always seems to be in the centre of all the attention as he keeps the mood of the dressing room light.
Now, Riyan Parag has perfectly pulled out the mimicry of the former dashing opener of India, Virender Sehwag while batting. Parag was involved in a guessing game with his teammate Shreyas Gopal. Parag had to act without speaking and Gopal had to guess the name.
As soon as Sehwag’s name is popped up, Parag hilariously imitated Sehwag to make Gopal guess the name. When Gopal was unable to guess the name right in a couple of tries, he mimicked the exact way in which Sehwag used to hit the boundaries. That is the moment when Gopal guessed the name right.
Rajasthan Royals shared the hilarious video on their social media and also tagged Virender Sehwag. The fans burst into laughter after watching the video.

Riyan Parag Has So Far Failed To Deliver In IPL 2021
In the meantime, Parag has not performed well in this edition of the IPL so far. He has played all six matches for Rajasthan Royals and managed to score only 63 runs in those matches at an average of 15.75. Parag has managed to pick up only one wicket in those matches, and he will be looking to step up with his performance in the upcoming matches.
Rajasthan Royals will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the first game of the doubleheader on Sunday. They have managed to win only 2 games out of the seven matches they have played so far. The Royals have lost four of their main overseas players this year due to various reasons with the likes of Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Liam Livingston and Andrew Tye out of the tournament since the start.
However, a new addition to their team is Rassie van der Dussen. He is currently completing his quarantine. Royals would hope that players like Riyan Parag step up and solve their middle-order woes. Sanju Samson’s team badly needs it if they hope to qualify for the playoffs this year.
The Story Of The Rajasthan Royals Team So Far; What Can They Do Next?
The Rajasthan Royals side has failed to impress so far this term. They have been struggling at times in IPL 2021. Skipper Sanju Samson is trying his best to find the best combination of players to play for him. So far, he has seen some ups and downs with regards to the results.
At present, the team is in fifth place, with three wins in seven games. They managed to beat the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match. That would have given them a huge boost moving forward. The next few weeks could be really crucial for the team from Rajasthan and Riyan Parag in particular as well.
