Tilak Varma wasted no time in making his mark on the T20I stage. Fresh off a stunning catch earlier in India vs West Indies T20I, Tilak strode to the crease after Ishan Kishan’s departure in the fifth over.

With India at a tentative 28, the left-handed dynamo seized the moment, launching Alzarri Joseph for consecutive sixes. A deep mid-wicket heave and a powerful swing over a deep square leg showcased Tilak’s aggressive intent and showcased his potential as a formidable force in the format.

At 20 years of age, Varma has made his presence felt in the Indian Premier League as a key player for the Mumbai Indians, amassing an impressive tally of 740 runs from 25 matches, maintaining an average of 38.95 and a commendable strike rate of 144.53.
