Chopra also praised RR’s strategy to go after the Assam all-rounder Riyan Parag in the mega auction. Describing the situation, the 44-year old said – “Known devil is better than the unknown one.” He also said – “The big question that is always there with this team is what do they see in Riyan Parag that they go behind him. If you isolate him as a cricketer, you can get better options. But when you think logically, he is the best youngster around as others who played for RR like Lomror and Tewatia were sold for a hefty fee. But the number at which he bats, there are really not many options. Known devil is better than the unknown one maybe.”
