He told me that ‘You are not going to get the Orange Cap, you are batting at No. 5 or 6, so there is no point in thinking about Orange Cap. All you have to think about is how you want to score 20 or 30 runs for your team in difficult conditions, just think how you can get the team out of such situations. ”

In the first season of the 14th IPL season, Parag scored 25 runs in 11 matches against Punjab Kings with the help of four and 3 sixes. Although Rajasthan lost the match by a close margin of 4 runs, Parag’s innings entertained everyone.
