The tweet about Riyan Parag from Suryakumar Yadav got mixed reactions from fans. While some praised the right-hander for supporting the youngster, many others disagreed and asked the MI batter to delete the tweet. Suryakumar responded to his earlier tweet with another tweet on Wednesday.
Suryakumar Yadav Issues Clarification Over His Tweet on Riyan Parag
Several players have performed some unusual celebrations during the ongoing IPL 2022. Riyan Parag, an emerging all-rounder, has received criticism on social media for his on-field celebrations. The youngster’s reaction on the field has sparked debate on social media, and once medium-pacer Harshal Patel refused to shake hands with him after the end of a league match between the Rajasthan Royals and the Royal Challengers Bangalore due to his earlier celebration.
Suryakumar Yadav, India’s limited-overs specialist, recently expressed his thoughts on Parag’s attitude on social media during the Qualifier 1 match between Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans on May 24. Netizens were not impressed and even urged him to delete the tweet in order to avoid encouraging the youngster.
Yadav came forward a day after his tweet caused a stir in the comments section and asked fans to calm down. “For his fielding last night guys Chill,” the Mumbai batter wrote on his official Twitter account.

Riyan made headlines in Qualifier 1 for his angry stare at Ravichandran Ashwin after the latter had him run out near the end of the first innings. RR posted a competitive total of 188/6, but it was insufficient as GT won the match by seven wickets after David Miller clobbered pacer Prasidh Krishna for three sixes in the final over.
Trolls on social media have frequently gotten the better of Parag. He was criticized by commentators and fans in this IPL for mocking the third umpire after taking a catch. Prior to that, he had a falling out with RCB players Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj.
