Shane Bond, assistant coach of Rajasthan Royals, praised Riyan Parag’s performance in the IPL 2024 match against Mumbai Indians, comparing his talent and maturity to that of a young Suryakumar Yadav.

Rajasthan Royals’ assistant coach, Shane Bond, expressed immense admiration for Riyan Parag’s exceptional performance during the IPL 2024 clash against Mumbai Indians. Parag’s unbeaten 54 runs in a challenging chase not only secured a crucial victory for his team but also showcased his remarkable talent and maturity on the field.

Drawing parallels to the early career of Suryakumar Yadav with Mumbai Indians, Bond highlighted Parag’s immense potential at just 22 years old. Speaking during the post-match press conference, the coach hailed Parag as a player of ‘extreme talent’ whose rapid development is evident in his consistent performances on the big stage.

“He (Riyan Parag) sort of reminds me a little bit of Surya (Suryakumar Yadav), who came to Mumbai a few years ago. He looks like that – he has got extreme talent. He has just matured as a cricketer, even though he is only 22,” Bond said.

“He has had an outstanding domestic season, obviously, batting up the order. The trade we made with Devdutt, bringing Avesh in, that was to put Riyan up into a position which was probably better suited,” he added.

Bond also commended Parag’s growth, noting his early exposure to the challenging role of a finisher in the IPL despite his young age. He highlighted the contrast between Parag’s youthful presence and the seasoned international players typically found in similar roles across other teams.

With Parag’s wealth of experience despite his youth, Bond expressed excitement about the contributions he can make throughout the rest of the season, emphasizing the promising prospects for Rajasthan Royals.
