IPL 2021: Tyagi’s reply to Bumrah praising him for last-over heroics wins hearts
Kartik Tyagi was under discussion in the city due to its sensational final against the Punjab Kings, which helped the Rajasthan Royals secure a spectacular two-way victory in their final game on Tuesday. Pulls played 4 rounds in their last game, conceding just two and scoring two goals as the PBX stumbled in the last two rounds, chasing 186 to win.
Thrust has earned all the admiration he has received, and former and current cricketers praise the 20-year-old pacer for his phenomenal victory to keep PBCS from winning. Former England player Graham Swann called him Best Last Seen, while Parthiv Patel had no words to describe what happened in recent moments at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday.
But perhaps the biggest inspiration for Tyaga was none other than Jasprit Burma, who posted a special tweet congratulating RR. What an end, #KartikTyagi! To stay calm under such pressure and get the job done, great things make a huge impression! #PBKSvRR # IPL2021, Tweeted Bumra.

In response, quoting Burma’s tweet, Tyagi won the hearts of several Indian cricket fans by saying, It’s great to receive recognition from my hero.
It feels so great to get appreciation from my hero 😊 https://t.co/R4ZhCLRKc4

While Tyagi and Burma play on opposition teams in the IPL, the two speedy bowling alleys shared a locker room on an Indian Australian tour earlier this year where the 20-year-old was a clean bowler with the Indian team. Tyagi had to search Burma’s brain several times over four series of tests.
The deadlift was the only bowler on the team not to play in the Test series due to injuries of some of the best players. However, after India’s famous victory in the series, Captain Ajinkya Rahan recognized Tyagi for his role on the team. Kartik, you were fantastic, Rahan said, which meant a lot to Tyaga.
I can’t give you the number of raises. But he will remember the praise from the skipper. For those who work hard in the shade, this is encouraging, said the Indian Express Bowler.
