Time up for Tilak Varma, Shreyas Iyer dispatches destructive batter in IND vs AUS 4th T20I

Time up for Tilak Varma, vice captain Shreyas Iyer books spot in India Playing XI

It has been a bitter-sweet affair for Tilak Varma in the ongoing India vs Australia (IND vs AUS) T20I series. With star batter Shreyas Iyer back in the squad for the last 2 games, Varma’s spot in the Playing XI has significantly dwindled down. It is safe to say that Varma has played well given the chances that he has got, but now simply will have to pave the way for a better and senior batter in the team.

After a lengthy World Cup schedule Shreyas Iyer got a break, but he is set to join the squad for the last 2 matches of the series as the vice captain of the team. It is a no-brainer that the dependable middle-order batsman will get his chance in playing XI and being the vice-captain too has itsown perks.
