Riyan Parag said he would just look back on the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) season and “smile”. Parag had a chance to win its first IPL title when the Rajasthan Royals just reached their second final since 2009, but they lost the final by seven wickets to tournament debutants Gujarat Titans.
It brought an end to a sea-saw season for Paragh individually, in which he scored 183 runs with a strike rate of 138.63 in 14 innings. He was barely used as a bowler this season and took one wicket.
“Sometimes all you can do is look back and smile. Smile because it does not matter what the world thinks of you. Smile because if you go to bed every night, knowing that you have given yourself 100%, it will always be good. It was not our night yesterday, but it’s definitely the beginning of something memorable, do not let the smiles fall because we could not make it to you yesterday, but smile, because we are certainly part of your morning, one “Until then, stop and Halla Bol,” Parag said in his post.
RR finished second in the league table with nine wins from the 14 matches and successfully qualified, and then went on to play with GT in the top clash for the title. Their batting order failed to fire at night as they were limited to 130/9. Parag fell after scoring a run-a-ball 15.
