The unexceptional performance by Tilak Varma throughout the season has even made star icon Mahela Jayawardene speak about the batsman himself.
Tilak Verma gets praise as he was one of those few players in Mumbai Indians who performed consistently well.
Mahela Jayawardene stated that Tilak Varma is one of the “standout young players” who has benefited the team at the position of 4 or 5. Talking about a recent game, Mahela added that he can finish a game also, and the challenges faced by him have made him even better.
But as the IPL format is, when the team doesn’t perform well, the individual performance doesn’t empower much on it, but Tilak Varma has surely won many hearts and Twitterati would be one of the first to suggest Tilak Varma a spot in the national team soon.
🎙️ Mahela will be answering questions from the media ahead of #MIvDC:
