Tilak Varma made his IPL debut at the young age of 20 in 2022. In his second IPL match, he impressed everyone by scoring a quickfire 61 off 33 balls. Although Mumbai Indians performed poorly in the 2022 edition, Tilak Varma was one of the few positives that occurred for the team. He scored 397 runs, the second-most runs by a Mumbai Indians batter.

In the 2022 IPL edition, Tilak’s strike rate (131.02) was not up to the mark. In the 2023 edition, he went all through and didn’t spare any bowlers. Tilak scored 343 runs with a blazing strike rate of 164.11.

He also played his career-best innings (84*) off just 46 balls against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru. He is one of the main reasons why the Mumbai Indians qualified for the 2023 playoffs. In the 2024 IPL, he will be seen playing for the same franchise, for the same price (INR 1.70 crore).
