The Royals defeated KKR by six wickets at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday.
The Guwahati youngster, who has been playing domestic cricket for Assam since 2017, took an impressive catch on the boundary to dismiss a well-set Rahul Tripathi on Saturday.
Tripathi was looking threatening on 36 when Parag took the catch at deep midwicket off Mustafizur Rahman to reduce KKR to 94 for 5.
Parag pretended as if he was taking a real selfie by holding the white ball like cell-phone.

Teammate Tewatia joined the fun and the two posed together. Parag repeated the sequence after taking a sharp catch from Pat Cummins in the 20th over, and this time also, the duo repeated the sequence.
A fan was quick to tweet that, “Riyan Parag’s catches and his celebration in the field has a separate fan base, especially his Bihu dance and today taking a selfie with Tewatia imagining the white ball as his camera was one of the most cutest moment in IPL.”

Earlier, Parag used to celebrate his catches by doing Bihu dance, an indigenous folk dance of Assam.
