Punjab Kings lost to Rajasthan Royals in the final over needing 186 to win They failed t score four off the final over and fell short by just two runs. It was another nail-biting contest between the two sides Kartik Tyagi defended four runs in the 20th over. Meanwhile, Riyan Parag who attended the press conference for the Royals shared his tips for Mustafizur Rahman who bowled the 19th over.

The Fizz gave just four runs in the penultimate over leaving four runs for Tyagi to defend in the final over.

“Cricket is a really funny game. We were in the driver’s seat after the first innings. But we were poor in the field and the game was slipping away from us. But in the 19th over, I was at mid-off and I told Mustafizur (Rahman) – don’t let it finish in this over and we have a chance with Kartik (Tyagi) bowling the 20th,” Parag said at the post-match conference.

Riyan Parag further went onto rate Kartik Tyagi’s over as the best final over he has seen in his career so far.

“It is the No. 1 spell I have seen in all of my cricketing career. I hope he does it in the rest of the games too and wins us more matches. Those boys (Mustafizur and Tyagi) were insane. Defending eight runs off the last two overs, it was just incredible,” Parag added.
