Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Kartik Tyagi bowled a dream last over against the Punjab Kings in the IPL 2021 match played last night. The Indian pacer defended four runs off the last over while bowling to experienced T20 players like Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda and Fabian Allen.

After the match, Kartik Tyagi spoke to his teammate Mahipal Lomror in an interview uploaded on the Indian Premier League's official website. Lomror asked Tyagi about his mindset during the final over.

Tyagi replied:

"It was a do-or-die situation for me. I only concentrated on bowling the right deliveries. People came and gave me advice, but I had it in my mind that I need to bowl yorkers on all six deliveries. So, I tried the same and was able to execute it eventually. I was happy to see everyone come out to the middle and celebrate the win."

Mahipal Lomror also played an important role in Rajasthan Royals' win. He played a brilliant knock of 43 runs from 17 deliveries, smashing two fours and four sixes. In the same video, Mahipal said:

"I tried to smash the balls that were in my slot. My thinking was that if it is in my slot then I will take the aerial route and make sure it goes out of the boundary line. You performed well, Kartik and I hope you continue doing the same job for the Rajasthan Royals."

Rajasthan Royals will play their next match against Delhi Capitals on Saturday. It will be the first afternoon game of IPL 2021's UAE leg.
