While Assam handed the first defeat to the Group B table topper Kerala at the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (SMAT) 2023/24, the Assam skipper Riyan Parag created a new world record in T20 cricket as the right-handed batter became the first cricketer to score 50+ runs in six consecutive T20 innings.  

On October 27, 2023, Assam sent Kerala to bat first and restricted them to 127/6 in 20 overs. In reply, captain Riyan Parag guided Assam to reach the target in 19.3 overs after losing eight wickets. Although Assam were once struggling at 101/8 in 17.4 overs, Parag’s 57 not out off 33 balls (one four and six sixes) proved to be strong enough for Assam to beat Kerala.

In the ongoing SMAT edition, the right-handed batter scored 61 against Bihar, 76 not out against Services, 53 not out against Sikkim, 76 against Chandigarh, and 72 against Himachal before completing his sixth consecutive T20 50+ score to set a new T20 record.

Previously, seven different players recorded 50+ scores in five consecutive T20 innings, including former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag. However, after Riyan Parag became the eighth cricketer to achieve the feat, he excelled in the record and became the first cricketer to record 50+ scores in more than five straight T20 innings.
