Tilak Varma has made significant contributions to team India as a batsman, he recently made his T20 debut against West Indies, and in the first 3 matches he has already scored 139 runs and also secured his first T20 half-century.

Even though he is currently playing in the t20 format, the chances are high for him to be considered in the world cup squad. Tilak Varma also had a successful IPL; in the 25 matches he played, he scored 740 runs.Player selection has never been easy for Team India, as the country is filled with talented players.

Captain Rohit Sharma recognizes the talent and hunger Tilak has but makes no strong comments about him playing for the world cup. India will be playing their final T20 against West Indies today; both teams have fought really well and are currently tied at 2-2; whoever wins this match will win the series.

Tilak Varma's performance will play a crucial role in helping team India make the runs.
