Tilak Varma, a young batsman for the Mumbai Indians (MI), made history on Monday by being the second-fastest Indian batsman to reach a significant milestone, behind Ruturaj Gaikwad and the late Sachin Tendulkar.

In 33 innings, Varma became the third player to amass 1000 runs, two behind Tendulkar and Gaikwad (31 innings), who tied Sachin's record to become joint quickest in 2022. Raina (34 innings), Pant (35 innings), and Devdutt Padikkal (35 innings) round out the list.

Varma's accomplishment highlights his remarkable skill and ability at batting in the fiercely competitive T20 competition. Accompanying legendary forebears such as Tendulkar and Gaikwad, Varma's feats mark a fantastic beginning to his IPL career and promise a more promising future.

Along the way, Varma surpassed Rishabh Pant and Yashasvi Jaiswal to become the third-youngest Indian to achieve the accomplishment. Sanju Samson and Prithvi Shaw are ranked fourth and fifth, respectively.

In a match against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur, Varma led the Mumbai Indians to 179/9 with a brilliant 65 off 45 balls that included five fours and three sixes.

When he joined Suryakumar Yadav in the middle, Varma's knock stood tall amid rubble as MI were 6/2 following the losses of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan.

Varma's accomplishment is proof of his talent and tenacity on the cricket field, as he continues to wow with his batting abilities.
