Rajasthan Royals’ batter, Riyan Parag has made a rather quirky appeal to Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans.
The youngster wants both these teams to win their games today against Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
If this scenario happens, then Rajasthan Royals will qualify for the playoffs and grab the 4th spot.
While they have already defeated Punjab Kings in their last league game, RR still needs other match scenarios to play out in their favor.
Notably, the major possibility of their qualifying for the playoffs comes from RCB’s loss. If RCB loses by four or fewer runs, RR will go through but if not, then the season is over for the three-time finalists.
Therefore, after the game against Punjab Kings, Riyan Parag took to his Twitter handle and requested SRH and GT to win today.
GT and SRH please help us out a little now.
RR thrash Punjab Kings in their last league game of this season
Meanwhile, coming back to their game, Riyan Parag hit 20 from 12 balls that proved to be crucial runs.
However, his form has been under constant scrutiny this season as he failed to get runs at the start.
Moreover, in the first innings, Punjab Kings scored 187 runs in their 20 overs.
They then asked Rajasthan Royals to chase down 188 runs which looked quite easy at Dharamshala.
But, in the second innings, Jos Buttler was dismissed quickly, and Yashasvi Jaiswal and Devdutt Paddikal managed the show for quite some time.
After their dismissals, it was Shimron Hetmyer who scored 46 from 28 balls.
But, still, the game was looking quite out of reach from RR’s hand as PBKS bowled tight.
On the other hand, Dhruv Jurel finished off the game for RR as he hit a boundary to take his side through.
Rajasthan Royals won the game with only 2 balls to spare and are now awaiting the results of today’s games.
