Suryakumar Yadav adds another tweet to his comment on Riyan Parag’s ‘attitude’ | Cricket

Very few cricketers have polarized the fans as much as Riyan Parag has done in IPL 2022. The Rajasthan Royals all-rounder has often been the reason for social media debates mainly due to his celebrations and on-field antics. Parag was once again in the middle of a social media whirlwind during the IPL 2022 Qualifier 1 match between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals. And this time, Mumbai Indians batter Suryakumar Yadav also got sucked into the debate after he had tweeted about Parag’s “attitude”. “Amazing attitude on the field #riyanparag,” this tweet from Suryakumar attracted contrasting reactions from fans. While some praised the right-hander for backing a youngster like Parag, many did not agree with the MI batter and asked him to delete the tweet.

Suryakumar on Wednesday posted another tweet to clarify his earlier comment. The 31-year-old asked the fans to calm down and said he was actually talking about Parag’s fielding. “For his fielding, last night guys Chill,” tweeted Suryakumar Yadav.

Suryakumar’s earlier tweet in which he had praised Parag’s attitude, had come after the RR cricketer made quick ground while at long-on to stop a boundary. After he slid and deflected the ball, he was immediately seen expressing his displeasure at teammate Devdutt Padikkal, who was standing at deep mid-wicket and was a tad late in backing up.

Earlier, Parag took Twitter by storm when he gave a death stare to veteran India and RR cricketer R Ashwin. The two were involved in a mix-up in the last over which resulted in Parag’s run out. The youngster was then seen directing his frustration at Ashwin with a fling of his arms and a stern look.

Parag has often found himself on the wrong side of social media trolls. In this IPL, he was slammed by commentators and fans for mocking the third umpire after taking a catch. Even before that, he was involved in a spat with RCB players Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj.

Parag will next be seen in action in the Qualifier 2 against RCB on Friday. RCB and RR will fight for a place in the final, the loser will be knocked out.
