Arjun, a regular bowler at Lord’s nets, is an all-rounder but is mainly a left-arm pacer. He was one of the bowlers bowling to the Indian women’s team ahead of the final clash against England in the ICC World Cup.
Before that as well, Arjun was seen bowling in the England net session, where one of the deliveries from him hit Jonny Bairstow on his leg which left the batsman in pain. The batsman was quick to leave the nets soon after.

Arjun would be looking to make most out of the experience he gained while bowling in the Lord’s nets to international teams.
