Rajasthan Royals Coach Reveals 'Trade Strategy' By Franchise To Get Best Out Of Riyan Parag

Rajasthan Royals assistant coach Shane Bond has described in-form Riyan Parag as a player of "extreme talent" and likened him to a young Suryakumar Yadav who joined Mumbai Indians several years ago and went on to become one of the most explosive T20 batters in the world.
