Before the toss, in a significant development, youngsters Abhishek Sharma, Riyan Parag and Dhruv Jurel got their T20I debut caps for India. 

Riyan Parag grabbed the limelight when he received his maiden call-up on the back of a brilliant IPL 2024. He was handed his debut cap by his father Parag Das, who is a former First Class cricketer of Assam.

Riyan Parag was one of the three cricketers who made his debut for India and received a landmark as he became the first male cricketer from Assam to represent India at the highest level. 

The 22-year-old received his cap from his father and it was a great gesture from Indian team management to allow him to present the cap to his son.
