Confident Tilak Varma ready to step up for any role

The left-hander in Tuesday’s game smashed 37 off just 17 balls to give the innings the much-needed energy after SRH slowed things down around the midway point. He countered and shared a 50+ stand in just 27 balls for the fourth wicket with Cameron Green (64 off 40) until Bhuvneshwar Kumar struck at a vital moment to end the partnership by having Tilak Varma 37(17) caught at a deep point. Green continued to be unblemished, and MI scored 192/5. After that, MI bowled SRH out for 178 to win the match by 14 runs, thanks to a team effort, reports Live Cricket Score.

“I always feel at ease when playing in any circumstance. I have practised my game on the field, planning for every scenario that might arise. I always reassure management that I am capable of batting at any place and in any circumstance. They, therefore, put me up to bat because they are likewise confident. I was only considering the circumstance and what the team needs. Washy (Washington Sundar) and Mayu (Mayank Markande) were bowling well. Before I charged at the fast bowlers, I considered playing them. I am satisfied because I charged my tank and travelled the route I desired, Varma stated in a post-match press conference.

Tilak Varma said he didn’t want to face spinners and was waiting for the fast bowlers to come in to bowl after his vital 37-run innings. The 20-year-old made an immediate impression after joining the MI last year, hitting 397 runs in 14 games with a strike rate of 131.02. He has continued his strong play this season and has already contributed critical hits in four of the five games.
