Rajasthan Royals (RR) batter Riyan Parag has his "priorities" sorted ahead of the mega IPL 2024 clash between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), which will decide the final team to qualify for the IPL 2024 playoffs.


Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be in action against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Saturday at Bengaluru. With RCB in seventh place with six wins, seven losses and 12 points and CSK in fourth place with seven wins, six losses and 14 points, this match is a knockout match that will decide which team gets to join Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the playoffs.


Taking to X, Riyan posted a chat with his support coach and head of coaching (RR Academy) Siddharth Lahiri, saying that he is skipping the match practice in favour of watching both the teams play.


"Priorities," tweeted Parag.

Parag is the fourth-highest run-scorer this season, with 531 runs at an average of 59.00 and a strike rate of 152.58, with four half-centuries. His best score is 84*.
