Tilak believes Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma won the IPL. He was given a chance to play in the tournament which gave him the motivation to perform well in the tournament. Verma said, "I have always loved captain Rohit, so getting a chance from him really boosted my enthusiasm and gave me confidence. He keeps telling me that I should enjoy my game, not under any pressure. So the more you enjoy yourself and play, positive things will come to you."
Verma further revealed how Sharma was guiding him when the team had lost eight matches. They said, "Right now, Mumbai Indians is going through a bit of a bad phase. We are playing well, but we are losing matches due to small mistakes. So even now he tells me that I am doing really well. There is no need to change anything. These things keep happening. We will definitely come back, you are doing well, so keep enjoying your game."
Apart from Sharma for Verma, head coach Mahela Jayawardene is technically assisting the batsman. Apart from Sharma and Jayawardene, Mumbai’s director of cricket and India’s great fast bowler Zaheer Khan has told Verma about adapting to different conditions in the game. In the team, Tilak shares a great rapport with South African batsman Dewald Brevis, who came into limelight this year with the highest run-scorer in the Under-19 World Cup and his batting style similarity with AB de Villiers.
