In a recent piece of news, the young Uttar Pradesh pacer Kartik Tyagi stunned everyone with his sheer pace in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2023. Notably, Uttar Pradesh are locking horns with Gujarat in the preliminary quarter-final of the tournament at the PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
Kartik Tyagi conceded 27 runs in his quota of 4 overs to scalp one wicket. Meanwhile, he also left everyone in shock with his sensational speed of 152 kmph. His amazing pace and brilliant bowling have also attracted a lot of reactions from cricket fans over social media.
Speaking of the action of the ongoing match between Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat, the UP skipper Karan Sharma won the toss and asked Gujarat to bat first. Batting first, it was only Saurav Chauhan for Gujarat who crossed the individual mark of 30+ runs, scoring 32 runs off 21 balls, with 4 fours and a six.
