After helping the Rajasthan Royals (RR) win an exciting final against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Game 32 on Tuesday, Kartik Tyagi was in shock and took a while to digest his exploits in the 20th. PBKS was heading for a victory while chasing the 186 target, but was stopped dead by Tyagi’s exploits. The young paceman took two wickets and gave only one run to win the game for Rajasthan. RR took to social media to post a video blog of their conversation in the post-game locker room, where the 20-year-old can be heard saying: “I can’t believe it”.
Tyagi was in a good mood and displayed a ready spirit by indulging in banter with the cameraman. “Stop, stop, stop. I can’t believe it. Now you’re going to take my photos, otherwise you never take. They never take my photos. Today they will take it,” Tyagi said.

The playmaker took two wickets and conceded 29 points in four overs and was also named player of the game. In the final, he got the wickets from Nicholas Pooran and Deepak Hooda.
Pooran looked set to finish the game for Punjab, but Tyagi had other plans and sent him to pack his bags. The West Indies international scored 32 of 22 balls.
Meanwhile, Hooda lost her wicket after facing two deliveries.
After the victory, RR climbed to fifth place on the 2021 IPL points table with eight points in eight games. RR will face the Delhi Capitals (DC) in their next game on Saturday.
