It is because of his father, Yogendra Tyagi that Kartik was admitted to a cricket academy. His father wanted to pursue a career in the shooting but could not do that because of a lack of support from his family. His father prioritized Kartik’s training over his occupation of farming. He faced a lot of trouble getting his son’s career started. But Kartik’s father believed in the skills & passion of his son. It is the result of his belief that Kartik has a made a name for himself in International Cricket.
Kartik’s career moved at a fast pace. He played for the UP U-14 team and UP U-16 team, but before he could play for the UP U-19 team, Kartik played for UP’s senior team at the age of 16. He made his first-class debut for UP in the 2017-18 season, and he made his List A debut in the same year in Vijay Hazare Cup. Kartik’s stunning performance & rocket fast deliveries at a very young age helped him made a different identity in the eyes of cricket pundits.

Based on his performances in the domestic circuit and under the 19 World Cup, Kartik was picked by Rajasthan Royals for 1.3 crores in IPL 2020 auctions. He made his debut against Mumbai Indians.
Kartik Tyagi hails from the land of two great bowlers that India is seen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Praveen Kumar. Well, that reflects in his bowling. He can swing the ball in both directions and also has a few variations in his bag.
Thanks to IPL, these young players have a great opportunity to learn from the best in the business and excel in their skills. Tyagi, playing for Rajasthan Royals, also has some great mentors in his team. There is Jofra Archer, Chris Morris, Andrew Tye, and many that he would be grateful to have around.
In India’s tour of Australia 2020-2021, Kartik Tyagi was selected as a net bowler. Just being around India’s best bowling lineup would have been a great learning perspective. And the Australian conditions would have been a change from the Indian conditions, and very critical for his growth.
