It was a perfect debut for Tilak Varma as the youngster pulled off a brilliant catch to dismiss Johnson Charles during the first T20I encounter between India and West Indies on Thursday. Charles miscued a shot off Kuldeep Yadav and the ball went miles up into the air. Tilak, who was stationed at deep mid-wicket, had a lot of ground to cover but he was able to pull it off and the catch became almost easy for him at the end. The effort stunned both fans and experts alike with all of his teammates congratulating him for the effort.
Twenty-year-old batter Tilak Varma was handed his India debut Thursday as the West Indies won the toss and chose to bat in the first of a five-match T20 series.
Seamer Mukesh Kumar, who debuted for India in the second Test last month and then played in the three-match ODI series, also earned his first T20 international cap.
