Ryan has performed brilliantly in IPL 2024. After failing to perform lower down the order as a finisher, he has been promoted to bat at number four. The young all-rounder faced trolling on social media for his performances last season, but he silenced them all with his aggressive intent and maturity.

Ryan has scored 181 runs in three matches at an average of 181.00 and a strike rate of over 160, including two half-centuries. His best score is 84*. He is tied with Indian and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) star batsman Virat Kohli for most runs in IPL 2024, having scored 181 runs in three matches at an average of 90.50 and a strike rate of over 141. He has scored two half-centuries, with a best score of 83*.

In the last IPL season, Parag had scored 78 runs in seven innings. He had 183 runs in 14 innings in IPL 2022. In 2021 he scored 93 runs in 10 innings. These numbers seem much lower when one also looks at his domestic cricket numbers for Assam, where he shows his more all-round side as a batsman.

In four matches of Ranji Trophy 2023-24, Parag scored 378 runs in six innings at an average of 75.6 with two centuries and one half-century. His best score was 155.

Parag also led Assam to the semi-finals of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 competition, and finished the tournament as the leading run-scorer with 510 runs at an average of 85 with seven half-centuries. He also took 11 wickets.

Last year, in the 50-over tournament Deodhar Trophy, Parag was the highest run-scorer playing for East Zone and took his team to the final. In five matches and five innings, Parag scored 354 runs at an average of 88.50 with a strike rate of over 136. He scored two centuries and one half-century. Most of his scores came in pressure situations and he found himself pulling his team out of trouble after losing early wickets or going through a collapse. He earned the title of 'Player of the Tournament' in the competition.

Talking about the match, RR won the toss and decided to bowl first. Trent Boult (3/22) destroyed MI's top order in the powerplay, taking their score to 20/4. A 56-run partnership between captain Hardik Pandya (34 from 21 balls, with six fours) and Tilak Verma (32 from 29 balls, with two sixes) settled the innings briefly, before MI again Ended at 125/. 9 runs in 20 overs.

Yuzvendra Chahal (3/11) and Nandre Berger (2/32) bowled well for RR and took regular wickets to shake up the MI batting order, not giving them any chance to breathe.

In the run chase, RR lost openers Jos Buttler (13), Yashasvi Jaiswal (10), while captain Sanju Samson could only score 12 runs in 10 balls. They were in a difficult position, reduced to 48/3. But Riyan Parag once again did a brilliant job of defending and scored 54* runs in 39 balls with the help of five fours and three sixes and gave his team victory by six wickets with 27 balls remaining.

Akash Madhwal (3/20) was the bowler of choice for MI.

Boult won the 'Player of the Match' award.

Rajasthan is on top of the points table with three wins from three matches, giving it a total of six points. Whereas Mumbai is at the lowest position after losing all its three matches so far.
