Veteran Indian fast bowler S Sreesanth has opened up on a change that the young prodigal pacer Kartik Tyagi has to make in order to achieve further success in world cricket. The spotlight fell on Tyagi on Tuesday as he made his debut in the grandest carnival of cricket, the Indian Premier League. He made it into the first eleven of Rajasthan Royals (RR) as they took on Mumbai Indians (MI) in their fifth game of IPL 2020.

Kartik Tyagi was one of the pillars behind team India’s glorious run in the ICC Under 19 World Cup held earlier this year in South Africa. He was bought by Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2020 auction and the young bowler was spot-on the mark from the first over itself. He clinched the first wicket for Rajasthan on the evening as he dismissed Quinton de Kock in his first over of the game.

S Sreesanth Opens Up On The Changes Kartik Tyagi Needs To Make In Order To Succeed

Speaking exclusively to CricketAddictor.com S Sreesanth said, “Its great to see someone bowling at such an effortless pace. That’s what Allan Donald sir used to tell me when I was in Warwickshire. Effortless pace is what can surprise the batsmen. He (Kartik Tyagi) is a very hard-working cricketer.”

“I have been watching him practise his skills. It is good for Indian cricket as young pacers, the couple (Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti)  from Kolkata have also impressed quite a lot,” S Sreesanth added.

Kartik Tyagi Can Be A World Cup Winner For Team India: S Sreesanth

Sreesanth further said, “I can definitely see Kartik Tyagi representing India on the global stage across all three formats in the years to come. He’s a certain match-winner and I believe he can win the World Cup with team India later on. The only change that I would want to suggest him is that he jumps out a bit more and he isn’t able to use the crease properly. If he corrects it, he can be a much better bowler.”

Rajasthan Royals have endured a poor run in IPL 2020 so far as they have lost three games consecutively. On Tuesday, they lost to Mumbai Indians by 57 runs and are now on the second last spot in the points table.
