“When I went to Australia, I learned a lot. A lot of players were injured and a youngster can also win the tournament and I also want to win matches for India,” Tyagi said after the match against PBKS.
“When I went to Australia, I didn’t go to Jasprit bhaiya because I was nervous but he came to me and discussed many things with me and it was a big moment,” he said.
