Kartik Tyagi credits Suresh Raina for helping him

As IPL 2021 resumed, Kartik Tyagi became an overnight sensation for Rajasthan Royals, after helping his team to win a thriller against Punjab Kings. Kartik, the young bowler for Rajasthan, was their saviour in the penultimate over, defending just 4 runs.

After the match, Kartik revealed that, before bowling 20th over many players gave him advise where to bowl, but he knew exactly how was he gonna bowl.

The Journey of Kartik Tyagi in Cricket:

The 20 years old has been playing his second season in IPL and is one of the key players for Royals. He came in limelight in 2020, when India won the ICC U-19 World Cup in South Africa. Tyagi ended his World Cup campaign with 11 wickets on his name, including his 24-4 match-winning spell against Australia in quarter-final of the tournament.

After a month of his World Cup campaign, Tyagi bagged a contract of 1.30 crore with inaugural season winner and IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals. Even though Tyagi didn’t perform well unlike his World Cup campaign, Rajasthan showed faith in the youngster and kept him for another season. Kartik also happened to miss the 1st leg of IPL 2021 due to an injury.

Kartik was born in Hapur district of UP. In 2017, Kartik made his first-class debut against Railways at the age of 16 years. After his impressive show in first-class, the very next year he made his List-A debut for Uttar Pradesh against Delhi Ranji in 2018.
