Abhishek Nayar heaps praise on youngster Tilak Varma. Tilak Varma is in the squad for the recent IND vs AUS T20 series.


Former Indian cricketer Abhishek Nayar praised youngster Tilak Varma for his batting prowess. Moreover, Nayar pointed out that Verma has leadership skills, which many have not yet noticed. Earlier this year, Tilak Varma made a big impression on the tour to West Indies. Following this, he secured his spot in the Asia Cup 2023 squad. With an average of 33.86, the left-handed batsman has scored 237 runs in 11 T20Is thus far. Moreover, his strike rate of 139.41 impressed many cricket fanatics and pundits. Praising Tilak Varma, Abhishek Nayar noted that his leadership and batting abilities are the two key components of his game. Abhishek Nayar was quoted by saying to Jio Cinema that,

“Tilak brings two dimensions of his game to the team. Yes, fielding is a part of it and yes, he can bowl, but what is really important when I say two dimensions are his batting and leadership skills” Abhishek Nayar further added,

“What you always see with Tilak Varma is fearlessness. He is a young player, but what I have always heard, Rohit Sharma often used to say that he is a great cricketing brain. Because when he plays for MI, he gives good suggestions to Rohit. That part of Tilak is going to be great for Indian cricket”

While playing for the Mumbai Indians in the past several seasons, Verma made a name for himself with his reliable middle-order efforts. He has developed into a dependable batter for the Mumbai Indians. He has scored 343 runs at an average at an average of 42.88 in the 11 games for the five-time IPL winners in last season. Tilak Varma made an immediate impression in his first season, scoring 397 runs in 14 games.
