Rajasthan Royals' medium-pacer Kartik Tyagi came in for praise from his peers for bowling a brilliant final over against Punjab Kings in which he claimed two wickets and conceded just one run to single-handedly win the IPL match for his team.

Tyagi's heroics helped Rajasthan Royals snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in an incredible finish as they had looked down and out with Punjab needing 10 runs off 15 balls, with Adrian Markram and Nicholas Pooran going strong.


The Kings needed only four runs from the final over but committed harakiri with Tyagi pushing them down the cliff.

The 20-year-old from Hapur, Uttar Pradesh was singled out for praise by Jasprit Bumrah, Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh, and bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad as many current and former stars took to Twitter to express their joy at his bowling.

Chennai Super Kings star and Tyagi's statemate Suresh Raina said: 

Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh called it an "unbelievable last over".

Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad too was effusive in his praise.
