It was almost formalities for the Punjab Kings batters when they were in the need of 8 runs by the end of the 18th over. Still, they have lost the match by 2 runs, thanks to Youngster Karthik Tyagi’s final over.
Punjab Kings’ heartbreak came on Tuesday when they lost a game that they had dominated for the most part. The game came down to the final two balls, and young Kartik Tyagi kept his cool to keep the opposition at bay. Tyagi produced a fantastic last over to help Rajasthan Royals win by two runs over Punjab Kings in an IPL thriller. PBKS needed four runs off the last six balls to win, but Tyagi removed Nicholas Pooran (32) and Deepak Hooda (0) for just one run to save his team from defeat.
