Tyagi hopes for a fresh start in Bangla

Tyagi scalped Sri Lankan skipper Kumar Sangakkara and gave away just 15 runs in 6.3 overs before the Kotla one-dayer was abandoned because of a dangerous pitch.

“I was quite disappointed with the incident because my international career did not start the way I wanted it to. I was bowling quite well and my economy rate was also not bad when the game was abandoned,” Tyagi said.

“I have left the incident behind and I’m gearing up to perform well in Bangladesh. I am going there with the hope of making a fresh beginning and I’m confident of making a mark,” the 22-year-old added.

The Uttar Pradesh paceman was all praise for the senior members in the team. “Everybody including Sachin helped me a lot. Sachin’s valuable tips helped me improve my performance. He always encouraged me in the nets,” Tyagi said.

Tyagi also feels his high-arm action will be helpful in the Bangladesh tri-series, commencing on January 4. “My high-arm action will give me an advantage in Bangladesh. Besides, it is also important to maintain the speed.”
