The 20-year-old stylish left-handed batsman from Hyderabad has turned heads in the West Indies T20Is, recording scores of 39, 50, and an unbeaten 49.
Ashwin’s comments were also backed by former chairman of selectors MSK Prasad, who wouldn’t mind seeing Varma in the final 15
Exciting part about Tilak Varma is that he is a left-hander and Team India is lacking left-handers
Two years ago, Mumbai Indians had placed a bet on a young player, who in his very first IPL season, had shown that he would soon play for India.
After creating a storm in two consecutive IPL seasons, the player is now not only playing for the Indian team but also showcasing his magic on the field.
We are talking about Tilak Varma, who recently made his debut for India in the West Indies.
Now, Tilak Varma has climbed to the 46th spot in the ICC T20 rankings, despite having played in just 3 matches as a young batsman.
Tilak Varma boasts an impressive average exceeding 55 (56.18), highlighted by five centuries and an equal number of half-centuries.
