Riyan Parag smashes 116-ball 174 as Assam enters Vijay Hazare semi-final beating Jammu & Kashmir


After Ruturaj Gaikwad’s brilliance earlier in the day, Riyan Parag joins the party too by smashing 174 runs in 116 balls while chasing 351 against Jammu and Kashmir in the quarter-finals of Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022.

The right-hander from Assam scored his century in just 77 balls.

 Parag hit 174 in just 116 balls with 12 fours and 12 sixes in a 351-run chase in the quarter-finals, containing his red-hot streak for Assam. 

Having reached the quarterfinals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy for the first time, Jammu and Kashmir set Assam a target of 351 runs, and it was Parag, who came up top once again for his side, as he has done in this tournament in the past. 

He has already scored two centuries and two fifties in the tournament before during the Group stage, and Parag continued to deliver when he needed him in the quarterfinal too. 

Rajasthan Royals congratulated Parag for his incredible effort with a post, which showed the middle-order batsman taking avatars of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) superheroes, Iron Man, Hulk, and Captain America among many others.

“Assam hai, Aasaan Nahi,” wrote RR in a separate tweet for Riyan Parag, having retained him for the IPL 2023 auction

Parag helped Assam reach the semifinals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022, and with his stunning form, he will be hoping to take his team all the way.
