New Delhi: T20 World Cup 2021 is going to start from October 17. India is considered to be a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year. The Indian team for the T20 World Cup has been selected long ago. Team India’s selectors missed out on choosing an Indian player for the T20 World Cup. If this player had played in the T20 World Cup, then India’s strength would have increased even more.
This bowler would prove to be a match winner in the T20 World Cup
Actually, an Indian bowler is showing his talent in IPL. This bowler is as deadly as Team India’s star bowler and yorker specialist Jasprit Bumrah. The name of this bowler is Karthik Tyagi, who turned the tide of the match with his killer bowling in the IPL match against Punjab Kings on Tuesday. This bowler saved Rajasthan Royals by saving 4 runs in the last over of the match against Punjab Kings, giving an impossible-looking victory. In this match, Karthik Tyagi took 2 wickets in the bowling of 4 overs.
Selectors missed out on T20 World Cup
Despite excellent batting, Punjab Kings lost the match they won. Rajasthan Royals set a target of 186 runs for Punjab Kings to win. In reply, chasing the target, the team of Punjab Kings could only make 183 runs for 4 wickets in 20 overs. Punjab’s team needed only 4 runs in the last over to win and had eight wickets left, but Rajasthan Royals bowler Karthik Tyagi gave only one run in the last over. Karthik Tyagi, who played domestic cricket for Uttar Pradesh, proved to be more stingy than Indian star bowler Jasprit Bumrah. Team India’s selectors missed out on choosing such a bowler in the T20 World Cup.
Team India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has praised young bowler Karthik Tyagi. Bumrah has described the performance of this Rajasthan Royals (RR) bowler as extraordinary. At the same time, South African fast bowler Dale Steyn also described Karthik Tyagi’s over as the best. Dale Steyn tweeted, ‘Closing to the best over ever defending the target.’
Who is Kartik Tyagi?
Karthik Tyagi came into limelight after an impressive performance in the Under-19 World Cup 2020. Tyagi played a key role in helping India reach the finals in that World Cup by taking 11 wickets in six matches. He also kept this form going in IPL 2020, where he played ten matches and took nine wickets. Although he was able to play only one match in the first phase of IPL 2021 due to injury.
