Rajasthan Royals speedster Kartik Tyagi has said Mumbai Indians and India pacer Jasprit Bumrah is the best bowler in the world at the moment. The comment from Tyagi came after Bumrah lauded his performance against Punjab Kings in which his last over led Rajasthan to a thrilling two-run win.
Chasing 186 runs, Punjab Kings was always in control with KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal put on 120 runs for the opening wicket.
However, Rajasthan made a sensational comeback. In the final over, Tyagi defended four runs as he conceded one run and took two wickets.
Jasprit Bumrah tweeted: “What an over, #KartikTyagi! To maintain a cool head under that kind of pressure and to get the job done, great stuff, very impressive!”
“That tweet was very special to me. When I went to Australia, it was a very big moment for me that I didn’t go to Jasprit bhaiya because I was anxious to talk. But he came to me and liked me and started telling me things,” Kartik Tyagi said.
“When I heard that Jasprit has tweeted about me, I thought I will personally retweet that. He is the world’s best right now and my hero, so if he tweets about me, it feels really good.”
