Riyan Parag Underarm Ball: The IPL 2008 winners Rajasthan Royals (RR) are currently locking horns with the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the fourth match of IPL 2021 season. Rajasthan Royals newly appointed captain Sanju Samson has won an important toss at the batting-friendly Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and has opted to bowl first. It has been an entertaining action as the Punjab Kings batsmen have made full use of the conditions so far.
After losing the wicket of opener Mayank Agarwal early in the innings, Punjab Kings’ explosive batting duo of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul seemed to be in an exploding mood as they put up a brilliant partnership of 57 runs. In order to slow down the run-scoring, RR captain Sanju Samson decided to use Riyan Parag as the part-time option. However, in a bizarre incident, Parag came up with a round arm action and it almost looked like an underarm delivery to Chris Gayle in the 10th over of the game.
Interestingly, in the very same over Parag also dismissed Gayle to provide a crucial breakthrough for the Rajasthan Royals. Gayle scored 40 runs off 28 balls.
After Gayle’s wicket, it was the Deepak Hooda show that took the centerstage in the Rajasthan Royals vs Punjab Kings encounter as the right-hander played an outstanding innings of 64 runs off only 28 balls that included 6 sixes and 4 fours. Hooda smashed the RR bowlers all over the park in that remarkable effort. Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul led his side from the front with a fabulous knock of 91 runs off just 50 balls that comprised of 7 fours and 5 sixes and helped his team put up a massive total of 221 for 6 in their 20 overs. For Rajasthan Royals, debutant Chetan Sakariya picked three wickets while Chris Morris ended with two scalps.
