WATCH: Riyan Parag runs Kohli out, dramatically imitates Kohli’s celebration


Struggling for runs in the IPL, Riyan Parag had a magical moment on the field in the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday as he produced a stunning direct hit against the run of play to catch Virat Kohli short by quite a bit.

Kohli looked to drop a Chris Morris delivery to point and take a quick single, but unfortunately took on one of the best fielders in the Rajasthan Royals side. Parag took his time with the throw and took down the stumps at the non-striker’s end perfectly. A smiling Kohli gave the impression that he had made ground, but replays revealed that he was well short of his mark.

A pumped up Riyan Parag was seen imitating the RCB skipper’s celebration (yes, that’s right!) quite dramatically in the further replays that came on the broadcast. 


The brilliant pick up and throw from Parag had social media raving. The youngster, who has been at the receiving end of criticism for his on-field antics (which includes animated celebrations and dances).


Sunil Gavaskar recently wrote in his Times Of India column that Rajasthan were interested in only increasing their social media following and weren’t serious about their cricket.

Parag had recently revealed that his most loved celebrity autograph is that of Virat Kohli’s on his Instagram page. He also shared a post in 2019 that alluded to Kohli being his idol.


Kohli’s run out came a acritical time for RCB as Padikkal had been dismissed just an over before and the RCB middle-order after Maxwell hadn’t quite stepped up this leg of the season.
