According to Rohit, Tilak is going to be an all-format player for the Indian national cricket team in the near future. The Indian captain further added that the youngster has got the technique and temperament in his resume.
“He (Tilak) has been brilliant, playing for the first year, having such a calm head is never easy. I feel he’s going to be an all-format player for India pretty soon. He’s got the technique and temperament. A lot of things are looking bright for him. And there’s hunger as well,” stated MI captain after the game against CSK.
Talking about how the game went, Rohit said, "Looking at how the pitch was playing and to lose wickets upfront, there were tense moments in the middle. It was just about keeping calm and getting the job done. After losing those wickets at the start, we were a little calm and got the job done in the end.
"We have played a lot of cricket here. On so many occasions, we've had pitches like this. It's nice to get bowlers into the game as well at times. It's been batting-friendly pitches all over, it was good to see bounce and swing from both sides which was good to watch," he said at the post-match presentation.
