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.”
