Soon after completing his half-century, the star batsman, who played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL, did a unique dance by doing a thumbs up and celebrated his first international half-century. In the post match presentation, Tilak was asked the story behind this celebration, so he took the name of Rohit Sharma’s little daughter Samaira for this reason. They said that “It was for Rohit bhai’s daughter Sammy. Sammy and I have a very good relationship. We both play like this, that’s why I said that whenever I score a century or a half-century in international cricket, I will celebrate like this. I celebrated this for Sammy only.
