IPL 2021: Peers praise Kartik Tyagi for heroic last over

Rajasthan Royals’ medium-pacer bowler Kartik Tyagi came in for praise from his peers for bowling a brilliant last over against Punjab Kings in which he took 2 wickets and conceded just 1 run to single-handedly win the IPL match for his team.

Tyagi’s heroics helped Rajasthan Royals snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in an incredible finish as they had looked down and out with Punjab needing 10 runs off 15 balls, with Adrian Markram and Nicholas Pooran going strong.

The Punjab Kings needed only 4 runs from the final over but committed harakiri with Tyagi pushing them down the cliff.

The 20-year-old Kartik Tyagi from Hapur, Uttar Pradesh was singled out for praise by Jasprit Bumrah, Suresh Raini, Harbhajan Singh, and bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad as many current and former stars took to Twitter to express their pleasure at his bowling.

Said Jasprit Bumrah: “What an over, #KartikTyagi! To maintain a cool head under that kind of pressure and to get the job done, great stuff, very impressive! #PBKSvRR #IPL2021

Chennai Super Kings star and Tyagi’s statemate Suresh Raina said, “Wat a game! Well done Kartik tyagi (Ok hand).”

Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh called it an “unbelievable last over”.
He said, “What a game unbelievable last over by #Kartiktyagi He won it for @rajasthanroyals”.

Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad too was effusive in his praise. “That was world-class stuff from Kartik Tyagi. Absolutely brilliant #PBKSvRR”

Another former India player Abhinav Mukund hailed Tyagi’s self-belief in the last over. “RR snatched victory from the jaws of defeat! Wow, the self-belief of @tyagiktk to defend 4 and give away just 1 in the final over!”
