IPL 2021: Riyan Parag hailed a CSK player in his tweet through RR’s account.© BCCI/IPL
Ravindra Jadeja is considered by many to be the best all-rounder in the current Indian cricket team. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player was recently part of India’s World Test Championship (WTC) Final team. They lost to New Zealand by eight wickets, at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton. So, when Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Riyan Parag were asked to name a player who can win both Orange and Purple Cap in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the franchise gave Jadeja as the answer. RR and Parag are currently conducting a question-and-answer session on Twitter.

Parag was last seen in action during IPL 2021, which was postponed indefinitely due to India’s battle against the COVID-19 second wave. The tournament was also hit with some high-profile coronavirus cases, which included Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) Lakshmipathy Balaji and Michael Hussey.
Even SunRisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) Wriddhiman Saha tested positive. He was part of India’s WTC Final team. Also, Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) Varun Chakaravarthy and Sandeep Warrier fell victim to the dreaded virus.
IPL 2021 is set to resume in the September-October window, and will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
