Rajasthan Royals put together a match-winning squad by acquiring the likes of R Ashwin, Yuzi Chahal, Trent Boult, and Shimron Hetmyer in the IPL mega auction this year. RR management’s hard work was rewarded this season as the side reached the IPL finals for the first time since winning the trophy in 2008.
The team atmosphere seems to be very chill as the likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Riyan Parag keep doing their funny pranks to keep the mood light. The duo are often known for their antics on social media and on the ground.
This time Riyan Parag teamed up with veteran R Ashwin and some other members of the Rajasthan squad to make quite an interesting reel. The young and experienced duo are joined by fellow teammates Dhruv Jurel, a young wicket-keeper from UP, and right-arm fast bowler Anunay Singh. Rajasthan’s performance coach A.T Rajamani Prabhu also joined the fray to create the reel on the concept of “Heyyyy”. All the Rajasthan players are seen making their entry with one piece of fitness equipment each.

R Ashwin returns to the Indian white-ball squad
Speaking of India’s most experienced spinner at the moment, R Ashwin has made a comeback to the Indian T20I squad for the five-match series against West Indies which starts on 29 July in the Caribbean.
R Ashwin was sidelined from the white-ball series against England in July and even missed the rescheduled Fifth test in Birmingham. Ashwin was not even included in the three-match ODI series against West Indies which starts on 22 July. Overall, Ashwin hasn’t played an international game since the 2nd Test against Sri Lanka at home in March.
It would be interesting to see if R Ashwin will be able to get himself in the playing XI in the upcoming T20 series given that India has more or less finalized their bowling combination and two spinners in Jadeja and Chahal. It would be really tough for Ashwin to make his way into the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.
• R Ashwin, Riyan Parag and other RR members create an entertaining reel.
• Ashwin makes his way back into the Indian T20 squad.
