IPL 2022 Auction: “I won’t mind spending 3-5 crores on Kartik,” says Aakash Chopra
The pacer has been exceptionally well for his previous franchise Rajasthan Royals. However, he didn’t play much in the last season due to injury, but now he is in the auction. The former Indian cricketer pointed out that Kartik is an emerging pacer who could represent India in the future. In a video he posted on his YouTube channel, Aakash said what he thought of Kartik Tyagi. He said,
“Kartik Tyagi – he missed the last year slightly due to injury but he was excellent the year prior to that. If I have money in my purse, Kartik Tyagi will be one of my important picks. I won’t mind spending 3-5 crores on him.”
Former Indian cricketer also expressed that because Kartik is young, so many teams can invest in him as a possible future prospect. He also pointed out that there are many overseas pace bowlers who are taking part in the auction. But as Kartik is a local talent, the teams can go for the local lad. He further added,
“A tall fast bowler, we have discussed earlier as well that in the overseas pacers as well. There is a lot of quantity but not quality. This guy is local, it means go vocal for local.”
Aakash: “Indian fast bowler who can bowl at 140 kph”
IPL 2022 Auction: Kartik’s best performance came in the match against Punjab Kings, when he defended four runs in the last over of the match.

“Indian fast bowler who can bowl at 140 kph, bowl with the new and the old ball. He can bowl the yorkers, bouncers, slower ones. I mean what else do you need. Kartik Tyagi is that unique bowler who can bowl at all stages. He reminds me a little bit about Prasidh Krishna.”
