Former India National Cricket Team all-rounder Irfan Pathan and former off-spinner Harbhajan Singh have opined that the 19-year-old batter Tilak Varma will represent the 5-time Indian Premier League champions, Mumbai Indians, for the next ten years.
Tilak has been one of the very few positives for Mumbai Indians in the awful Indian Premier League 2022 campaign. So far, the left-handed batsman has scored 328 runs for the Rohit Sharma-led side, including 2 fifties, and he is the highest run-getter for the Mumbai Indians in the 15th edition of the tournament.
Speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Pathan lauded “talented batter” Tilak and said that he will become a “superhero for MI”. He elaborated:
“Whenever a youngster does well he starts believing that he belongs here and once he gets the confidence he looks to cement his position in the team. We are seeing the same with Tilak Varma.
“He’s a talented left-hand middle-order batsman, who is worth gold in cricket. Every team looks to have a left-hander because he plays spin at ease, they have that natural ability to handle those angles from leg-spinners and left-arm spinners. This young hero will become a superhero for MI if he continues to play like this. He’ll play for the franchise for the next ten years.”
