GUWAHATI, May 7 - Young and energetic Riyan Parag�s ultimate aim is to don the Team India colours in the coming days.

Riyan, who returned home after a successful stint with the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) interacted with the media here today. It was his maiden experience in the cash-rich IPL where he had two eye-catching knocks. He scored 47 off 31 balls against Kolkata Knight Riders and 50 off 49 balls against Delhi Capitals. These two knocks had been able to draw the attention of the cricket fanatics of the country as the 17-year Riyan faced the world-class bowlers with a brave heart. His batting against Andre Russell or Sunil Narine of KKR was quite laudable.

�Had I remained unbeaten in the match against KKR it would have been very much satisfactory as I dragged the match home from a hopeless position,� said Riyan.

Thanking his coach Nabab Ali of the Guwahati Cricket Coaching Centre (GCCC), the young talent said, �I learnt the basics at the GCCC where along with my father Parag Das, Nabab Sir extended excellent support in honing my skills.�

�I was able to handle the pressure during the IPL after playing alongside the greats of the game and sharing the dressing room with my experienced team-mates,� he said. He added that now he has to be consistent in the first-class domestic cricket in order to draw attention of the national selectors. �The experience of the U-19 World Cup and IPL will definitely help me in developing my confidence.�
