Today we will talk about how Suresh Raina, though off the field, praised a youngster in the tournament for his performance and potential in the game for the years to come.
The 2022 Indian Premier League is in progress, and we have seen an insane amount of great matches. But are those enough for the fans? No! They always want more. More big hits, more flying of wickets, more action, more drama, the IPL has it all.
The Indian Premier League has delivered to every need of the fans since the beginning and continues on that path. This year, along with all the action-packed matches in the tournament, two new teams have been added to the format. Therefore, the now 10-team-tournament will entail the franchises of Lucknow and Ahmedabad.
The player, Suresh Raina praised for his performance is the Sunrisers Hyderabad youngster, Kartik Tyagi.
After his blasting performance in the 2020 U-19 World Cup, Kartik Tyagi got under the spotlight. He became the leading wicket-taker for India, with 11 batters falling as his victims. After that, his luck started to shine. Tyagi was called for the national duty of the squad for the Test series against Australia.
Furthermore, Kartik Tyagi gives a lot of credit to Suresh Raina. He says that it would not be possible for him without Suresh.
Suresh Raina became well known for providing the squad with the well-needed energy and motivation for the matches.
Statement By The Youngster
“Like I always say, after Under-16, Suresh Raina entered my life like a god as I began to enter the spotlight after the Ranji Trophy. At the age of 13, I participated in the U-14 trials, and that is how my cricketing journey began. I started playing for the U-14 team and then the U-16. I got 50 wickets in 7 matches in the U-16 tournament in a particular season. It was there that Gyanendra Pandey sir saw me and said that my performances ingrained him and he will help me go forward,” said Tyagi in a video.
Kartik Tyagi also added, “there was a time when Raina noticed me. I used to be very silent and observe everything. After his practice, Suresh came to me and asked me what my role was. I said that I was a bowler, and then he gave me a chance to bowl in the nets. He saw my performance and told me that, ‘I am impressed by your bowling, and I will make sure you get opportunities in the future.’ It was great that someone like Suresh Raina noticed my performance and praised me.”
Furthermore, Kartik joined the Sunrisers Hyderabad side for a whopping Rs.4 crores at the 2022 MEGA IPL Auction.
It is really motivating for youngsters like Kartik Tyagi to get such praise from the veteran. All the fans are eager to see how Tyagi performs for the years to come and make the country proud.
