“Amazing attitude on the field #riyanparag #RRvGT,” tweeted Surykaumar Yadav, who was ruled out of the last few matches of the IPL due to an injury, during the Gujarat Titans vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2022 Qualifier 1 match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Tuesday. While many welcomed Suryakumar’s tweet, there were others, who expressed their displeasure.

Suryakumar’s tweet came after Parag’s gesture towards teammate Devdutt Padikkal. In the 16th over of the LSG chase, GT batter David Miller smashed a Trent Boult yorker towards wide long-on. Parag, who was standing at a straightish long-on, covered the ground pretty quickly and managed to stop the ball from reaching the boundary.

While getting up, Parag was seen shouting at Padikkal for not backing up. Padikkal was standing at deep mid-wicket. That was not the only time when Parag sparked a Twitter debate on Tuesday. The young all-rounder had earlier gotten hyped up at R Ashwin after a mix-up with the veteran cricketer resulted in the former’s run-out in the last over of the RR innings.

Soon after this incident, Suryakumar tweeted and wrote, “Your attitude on the field is amazing Riyan Parag”.

GT chased down the target of 189 with 7 wickets in hand to become the first team to reach IPL 2022 final. On a two-paced track, Royals rode on Jos Buttler’s 56-ball-89 to reach a decent score of 188 for six in 20 overs, which seemed like a winning total considering the pressure of the occasion. But Hardik Pandya (40 no off 27 balls) and David Miller (68 off 38 balls) made a huge partnership of 101 runs to take the team over the line with three balls to spare.

After the match, GT skipper, Hardik Pandya said, “A lot of people counted David Miller out but for us he was always a match-winner from the time we brought him in the auction. What he did today, we always expected him to do that. But for us it was important to give him importance, love and clarity that what we expect of him and if he fails it’s okay, ‘it’s just a game’.”
