Tyagi showcased the damage he can do with the ball and all thanks to his last over brilliance, Rajasthan Royals sealed an epic two-run win over the Punjab Kings in their first outing of second-leg of IPL 2021.
Though, initially, he leaked 28 runs and was seen struggling to find some rhythm in the game. But skipper Sanju Samson showed faith in him and gave him the responsibility to defend four in the final over of the Kings’ run-chase. As a result, Kartik didn’t let his team and skipper down by any means.
