Fans troll R Ashwin for considering himself a better batsman than Riyan Parag

Fans trolled R Ashwin for turning down Riyan Parag’s attempt for a single, resulting in the latter’s run-out. Parag scored 4 runs off 3 balls, while R Ashwin remained unbeaten on 2.

Riyan was unhappy with Ashwin as he is a quality batter who can hit big boundaries. The senior player had retired out earlier in the season to give the young batter a chance to hit biggies.

However, the 34-year-old has since improved his batting approach and has played aggressive knocks for the Rajasthan-based franchise.

Fans were miffed with Ashwin and slammed the all-round cricketer.

Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya won the toss and invited Rajasthan to bat. The Sanju Samson-led team scored 188 in 20 overs. Jos Buttler hit 89 off 56 balls, including 12 fours and 2 sixes.
