Kartik Tyagi has better way to respond to the sledgers
India’s Kartik Tyagi has the best way to respond to the sledgers back says his childhood coach.
During Tuesday’s Super League Quarter-Final 1 of the ICC Under-19 World Cup at Potchefstroom, the 19-year-old right arm fast bowler was sledged by an Australia’s middle order batsman Oliver Davies.
On the second ball of his one over, Oliver Davies let the ball go behind the stumps to the wicket keeper. He was then seen raising his bat towards Kartik Tyagi and saying something. What inspired for the batsman to say to the bowler is not known.
But the India pacer just looked at him before going to his bowling mark and what followed thereafter was totally remarkable. Tyagi dismissed the right-handed batsman on the very next ball.
“He (Kartik Tyagi) is always very confident about his skills and potential. So according to him that was the best way to respond to the sledger”, Deepak Chauhan, Tyagi’s childhood coach, speaking exclusveily, said.
Deepak Chauhan has been Kartik’s mentor. “I have been working with him from past seven years and know about his strength well”.
“People know him only as a bowler but he’s a good bat too. He is a very good batsman too. In the beginning he used to score very good runs and also open with the bat in some local and reputed tournaments also”, the mentor added.
Back home, Kartik’s father, Yoginder Kartik was happy to receive him the Man of the Match.
“I feel very proud of his Tuesday performance. I watched the match on TV”, he said.
“Kartik is a very hard working boy. He is mad about becoming a cricketer since his childhood”.
Basically, Kartik’s family has agriculture / farming background. The family is based in a small village, Dhanora Dist., Hapur (UP).
