Parag, who often hogs the limelight for his viral celebrations, had quite a decent run in IPL 2021. He scored 78 runs in seven matches at a strike rate of 144.44.
The IPL 2021 came to an end after multiple COVID-19 positive cases were reported in as many as 4 IPL franchises.
On Tuesday, Sangakkara shared his reaction to the postponement of the IPL.
“It has been a good decision by the BCCI, and of course, the governing council of the IPL to postpone the tournament. Hopefully, we will all be back together soon when the tournament does restart. I wish everyone well,” he said.
