Riyan Parag Career

Riyan Parag, at 14 years old, had the potential to be India’s youngest first-class début if the Assam selectors had agreed with the state’s then-coach, Sanath Kumar.

On January 29, 2017, Riyan made his Twenty20 debut for Assam in the 2016-17 Inter-State Twenty20 Tournament.

In October 2017, he was picked to India’s ACC Under-19 Asia Cup squad.

He made his first-class debut for Assam in the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy on November 17, 2017.

In 2017, he was named to India’s Under-19 squad for two junior Tests in England.

He finished the two youth Tests in England as India’s second-highest run-scorer, after only Prithvi Shaw.

His two fifties in the first game, including a 33-ball half-century, the second-fastest behind Virat Kohli in recorded youth Tests, helped India declare and go on to win by 334 runs in Chesterfield.

In the second Test, he scored a half-century in India’s pursuit of rapid runs, forming a 131-run partnership with Shubman Gill for the fourth wicket to secure a 2-0 series victory.

Before the tour, he ended a prolific season by being the second-highest run-getter in the 2016-17 Cooch Behar Trophy, India’s national four-day event for U-19 players, with 642 runs in 14 innings and a top of 202 not out.

He was selected in India. He was part of the India U19 Challenger Trophy squad in 2017 and finished with the most runs in the competition.

He was picked to India’s 2018 Under-19 Cricket World Cup squad in December of 2017.

According to India U19 coach Rahul Dravid, he was in incredible shape, hitting it superbly in the build-up, but was sadly hurt.

Parag did not start the tournament due to a finger injury and was only included in the XI for the last group game against Zimbabwe.

He shattered his finger in the warm-up games but still competed in the latter portion of the competition.

Due to a finger injury on his left hand, he was unable to bat effectively. He improved his secondary skills and progressed as an offspinner.

He was the best run-scorer for Assam in the 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy, scoring 248 runs in seven matches.

In December 2018, he was purchased by the Rajasthan Royals in the 2019 Indian Premier League player auction for a base fee of Rs. 20 lakh.

During the 2019 Indian Premier League, he became the youngest cricketer ever to score a fifty.

He accomplished the accomplishment at the age of 17 years and 175 days, shattering the previous record of 18 years and 169 days, shared by Sanju Samson and Prithvi Shaw.

He was released by the Rajasthan Royals before the big auction for the 2022 Indian Premier League.

In February 2022, he was re-purchased by the Rajasthan Royals in the auction for the 2022 Indian Premier League.

In the 2022 Indian Premier League, he collected 17 catches, the most by any Indian fielder and non-wicket-keeper in the league. He struck a match-winning 56 not out for the Rajasthan Royals in a low-scoring thriller against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

In the 2022-23 Vijay Hazare Trophy, he was Assam’s leading run-getter and the fifth-best overall, with 552 runs at an average of 69, three tons, and one fifty.

He also got ten wickets this season with his leg-break bowling.

In the tournament’s quarter-finals, chasing a monstrous 351 against Jammu and Kashmir, he hit 174 off 116 balls, an innings laced with a dozen sixes and an equal number of fours.

In one of the group stage matches of the first-class 2022-23 Ranji Trophy tournament against Hyderabad, Riyan struck 78 off 28 balls with the bat in the second innings, apart from picking up an eight-wicket match haul with his leg break bowling to help his team clinch a closely fought contest by 18 runs.

In the 2023 Deodhar Trophy, he was named Player of the Series after scoring the most runs, hitting the most sixes, and taking the third most wickets.

He scored 354 runs in the competition, with a batting average of 88.50, and took 11 wickets with a bowling average of 19.09.

Riyan Parag broke Yusuf Pathan’s record of nine sixes for West Zone vs North Zone (2010), slamming 11 sixes in an innings to set a tournament record.

Parag scored centuries against the West Zone and the North Zone. In the final of the event, playing for East Zone versus South Zone, Riyan hit a 65-ball 95 after going to bat when his team was tottering at 72 for 4, chasing an intimidating total of 329.

In the 2023-24 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he scored 510 runs and hit 40 sixes, making him the leading run-getter and six-hitter.

For the second consecutive tournament, he led the run-scoring rankings in Indian domestic cricket.

He scored runs with a batting average of 85 and a strike rate of 182.79, becoming the first batsman to reach seven straight half-centurys in T20 cricket.

He also helped with the ball, taking 11 wickets during the competition.

During the same season, Riyan Parag scored consecutive first-class centuries against Chattisgarh and Kerala. He scored 378 runs in 6 innings of the 2023-24 Ranji Trophy, with a batting average of 75.60 and a strike rate of 113.85, and became the tournament’s highest six-hitter once more, with 20 sixes in the Elite category.

He scored the second-fastest century in Ranji Trophy history, reaching the milestone in just 56 balls. He hit 155 runs for Assam in their away encounter against Chhattisgarh in Raipur.

Officially, Rishabh Pant scored the fastest century in Ranji Trophy history off 48 balls against Jharkhand in the 2016 edition.

Unofficially, Shakti Singh scored the fastest century in 42 balls for Himachal Pradesh versus Haryana, but there were no official scorers at the time, therefore teammates did the scoring.

And as luck would have it, they started counting only when Singh neared fifty.

He was also included in the India A cricket team squad for the 2023 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup.

Riyan participated in the final against Pakistan A and took up two middle-order wickets from successive deliveries.
