Irfan Pathan says “It is not easy for anyone to defend 4 runs” in IPL 2021. Irfan Pathan has to praise Kartik Tyagi‘s last-over use for the Rajasthan Royals. And predicted a bright future for the young seamer. Kartik conceded just a solitary run in the final over. While defending a paltry four runs in RR’s IPL 2021 encounter. Against Punjab in the Indian Premier League. His deliveries did not allow the Punjab Kings batsmen to get under the ball and play the big shots.
Kartik Tyagi conceded just a solitary run in the final over. While defending a paltry four runs in RR’s IPL 2021 encounter. Against Punjab in the Indian Premier League. His deliveries did not allow the Punjab Kings batsmen to get under the ball and to have big shots. Also, Pathan pointed out that Kartik Tyagi accomplished an unenviable task.
“Kartik Tyagi is a youngster, he is not an experienced player. He is a young uncapped Indian fast bowler and he comes and bowls like this, it is not easy for anyone to defend four runs,” Irfan Pathan said.
Acknowledging that the PBKS batsmen contributed to their downfall. He believes the spell will be a shot in the arm for Tyagi.
“There were good batsmen in front of him, it was not that a No.9, 10, or 11 batsmen was batting, pure batsmen were playing. The Punjab Kings did make mistakes but the good areas in which Kartik Tyagi bowled will be a huge confidence booster in this boy’s career,” Pathan explained.
Aiden Markram on the second delivery was the only run Kartik Tyagi conceded in the last over. Markram bowled four dot balls after that and also dismissed Pooran and Hooda in the series.
Lastly, Irfan Pathan highlighted that Tyagi has already excelled for India at the under-19 level.
“He has come here after playing good cricket. He has represented India in under-19 cricket. There he took wickets for India and after that when he got an opportunity in the IPL, he didn’t play in the first half but perform under pressure,” Irfan Pathan said.
