Tilak Verma did a strong performance because of Rohit Sharma, know what was the reason

Tilak Varma Rohit Sharma Mumbai Indians IPL 2022: Mumbai Indians batsman Tilak Verma has performed brilliantly so far in IPL 2022. It is the dream of every young player to perform like this. This season, Mumbai had to face eight consecutive defeats before winning against Rajasthan Royals. At the same time, Verma is presenting strength in the batting order. He has become the highest run-scorer for the team with 307 runs in nine matches at an average of 43.86 and a strike-rate of 137.05.

Tilak believes that Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma giving him a chance to play in the IPL gave him the motivation to perform well in the tournament. Verma said, “I always liked captain Rohit, so getting a chance from him really boosted my enthusiasm and gave me confidence. He keeps telling me that I should not be under pressure in any situation, but just enjoy my game. 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. He said, “Right now, Mumbai Indians are going through a bit of a bad phase. We are playing well, but we are losing matches because of small mistakes. So even now they tell me that I am doing really well . Nothing needs to change. 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 shot into the limelight this year with the highest run-scorer in the Under-19 World Cup and his batting style similarity with AB de Villiers.
