19-year-old Tilak Varma does not comes from a rich family as his father was an electrician.

Tilak has played a lot of domestic cricket for Hyderabad across the three formats of the game. While having played a total of 15 T20 matches so far, the left-handed batsman has scored 381 runs at a brilliant strike-rate of more than 140 that includes as many as 3 half-centuries.
