Arjun’s all-round performance defined the game as he picked up 4 wickets with his left-arm fast bowling and scored a quickfire knock of 48 runs from just 27 balls. The 18-year-old’s Australian debut turned out to be successful as he got attention from the Australian media.

While talking to, Arjun said,

I just got stronger [growing up], 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. 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.

Here’s the video including excerpts from his bowling and batting:
