The youngster also revealed his game plan and said, “I don’t take that pressure, when I bowl I just hit the deck hard on every ball and when I bat just play my shots and choose which bowlers to take on and which bowlers not to.”
Unlike his father, Arjun wants to be a fast bowler and has opted to make his name as a left-arm quick. “I just got stronger, grew taller and I loved bowling fast from my childhood. I thought I may as well be a quick bowler because there aren’t many in India,” said the 18-year old.
