WI vs IND: Tilak Varma dedicates his maiden T20I fifty celebration to Rohit Sharma’s daughter Samaira

WI vs IND: Tilak Varma dedicates his maiden T20I fifty celebration to Rohit Sharma’s daughter Samaira

When Tilak Varma got his first T20I fifty, he hosted a party for Rohit Sharma's daughter, Samaira. In the second match against West Indies, Varma's impressive innings of 51 runs off 41 balls was the best thing the Indian batsmen did.

Varma explained in the press meeting after the game why he celebrated in such a unique way. He talked about how close he was to little Samaira and how he had told her that he would throw a party for her whenever he got his first hundred or fifty. Varma kept his promise and enjoyed his success by thinking about the special relationship he has with Sharma's daughter.

"It was towards Sammy (Samaira), Rohit bhai's daughter," Varma told media after the game. "Sammy and I are very close. I had told her that if I got a hundred or fifty, I would throw a party for her."

Even though Varma tried hard, India had a hard time in the second T20I, which West Indies won by two wickets. The match had exciting twists and turns that kept people on the edge of their seats.

West Indies had to get 153 runs to win. At first, it looked like they would win easily. But all of a sudden, they lost four wickets for only three runs over the course of 13 deliveries. This put them in a dangerous situation. At that time, it looked like India could turn things around and win when it looked like they were going to lose.

Still, the West Indies didn't give up, and Akeal Hosein and Alzarri Joseph's 26-run stand at the ninth wicket changed the game around. Both players played well with the bat and were also important with the ball, getting two wickets each to keep India's score to a small 152 runs.

Nicholas Pooran was the star for the West Indies because he scored 67 runs in only 40 balls. The Indian bowlers were always on their toes because of how aggressively he batted. The Indian hitters were thrown off by the West Indies' controlled and varied bowling, which helped the spinners on a pitch that helped them.

Pooran's removal caused a small collapse, but Hosein and Joseph kept their cool and led their team to an exciting win with seven balls to spare. It was the first time since 2016 that the West Indies had won two games in a row. This made their fans happy and set up an exciting third T20I, which India must win.
