“I was injured during the India leg of the IPL and by the time I got fit, the tournament was suspended. Felt sad. So, this feels really good. I have been talking to people over the years and they keep telling me that things keep changing in this format, so I need to keep believing. I’ve always heard from everyone and also watched games in this format where strange things have happened. Today, I was fortunate to play a big role in something special. I was bowling a bit too short earlier, later worked on it consciously after getting a lot of feedback,” said Tyagi after winning the player of the match award.

Meanwhile, the Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara had some words of advice for the team. He said, “There is nothing in life that says that someone deserves something or doesn’t. If that was the case, we won’t be here today in this mood. But a win is a win. And you know as well as anyone that we’ll take that.”
