The Indian team will play the World Cup on its own soil. Team India, who won the World Cup at home in 2011, is determined to win the cup this time as well. Yuvraj Singh played a key role in India winning the World Cup in 2011. The all-rounder has been the backbone of the team with his performances. This left-hander, who impressed with his batting in the middle order, also showed his ability in bowling. If India wants to win the World Cup this time… Yuvraj needs such a player.
With Rishabh Pant injured, there seems to be a shortage of left handed batters in the middle order. But Telugu cricketer Tilak Verma looks like a ray of hope. Although he has not played a single ODI so far, his performance in T20s on West Indies soil is promising. Fans believe that Tilak can play the role played by Yuvraj Singh in the 2011 World Cup. Fans are demanding that he be given a place in the World Cup team.
Tilak can bat in any position. He can play according to the situation. He is a good fielder. Not only that, he can also throw a hand in bowling. So like Australia has directly selected some young players for the World Cup.. Fans want BCCI to select Tilak too.
Playing new players before the World Cup is risky. But Tilak Verma was an exception. He is playing brilliantly. Netizens are of the opinion that he will be a game changer in the World Cup. As the World Cup is going to be held at home, lack of experience is not a big problem.
Former cricketers are getting tired of Tilak’s game. Irfan Pathan tweeted saying that a left-hander batsman scoring a half-century in the middle-order is a good sign for Team India.
If Tilak Verma is to be played in the World Cup, he should be selected for the Asia Cup before that. If you perform well in the Asia Cup, you will have a chance to be selected for the World Cup. Even if Tilak is not selected for this World Cup, it seems certain that he will play in the T20 World Cup to be held next year. Some netizens are of the opinion that if Tilak gets a chance in ODIs after this World Cup, he will become a key player for India.
