The India-West Indies T20 series kickstarted with a bang in Trinidad. The debut match showcased remarkable skills, particularly from India’s newcomer, Tilak Varma.

Making his national team debut, the young player left an unforgettable mark. A delivery from Kuldeep Yadav, the left-arm bowler, aimed at the stumps prompted Charles to attempt a powerful slog sweep. However, his plan went awry as the ball took an unexpected path off his bat.

Meanwhile, at deep mid-wicket, India’s debutant, Tilak Varma, sprang into action. Spotting the ball soaring into the sky, he sprinted 10-15 meters towards his left. Despite the seemingly endless airtime, Tilak stayed focused. With precision, he dived as the ball descended, executing an impressive running catch.

The crowd cheered as Charles left after scoring only 3 runs from 6 balls, while Yadav’s first-over success made an impression, and for Varma, it was an unforgettable debut moment.
