She’s seen the struggles: Riyan Parag

During the post-match interview after his stellar 84 not out against Delhi Capitals, Parag acknowledged his mother’s support, stating, “Emotions are settled, mum’s here as well. She’s seen the struggles, this feels special.”

After his half-century against Mumbai Indians, he added, “I have practised these kinds of scenarios (batting under pressure). (My) Dad likes to watch everything from home, he likes to analyse everything, but my mom is here.”
