Team India
Team India in a historical shot.

In the opening Twenty20 International in a five-game series, India fell to the West Indies by a score of 4 runs.

Tilak Varma made his international debut for India in Thursday’s opening Twenty20 International against the West Indies. The southpaw got off to a blazing start in the Indian Premier League with the Mumbai Indians and on the home circuit. In his second at-bat, he faced Alzarri Joseph and hit him for six over deep square leg. Tilak hit a second six by hitting the ball over the head of the fielder at deep mid-wicket on the very next delivery.

Former India bowler RP Singh gushed over Tilak, calling him the “future of Indian cricket,” while discussing the game.

A very good knock indeed. For Indian cricket, I believe the future lies inside him. Tilak Varma fits the profile of the left-handed middle-order hitter we’ve been looking for. He started off with a six and followed it up with another six. The third six he hammered over the fielder was the best of the bunch. Over extra cover, it’s not simple to hit a six, as RP pointed out on Jio Cinema.

Tilak scored 39 runs off only 22 balls in the opening T20I.

Varma said, “It was a childhood dream of mine to play for India,” after he finally got his chance to represent his country. I had no idea that this chance would present itself to me so soon.

The Under-19 World Cup was interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, he continued, so he was surprised by the opportunity’s timing. For my team, I imagine a World Cup victory. This idea continues circling in my head, and I’ve pictured it dozens of times.
