After he got picked by the franchise, Mumbai Indians shared a video of him on their official Twitter account. In the video, Arjun revealed that he has always been a huge fan of the Mumbai Indians franchise. He went on to thank the coaches and owners of the franchise for picking him up. He had been the net bowler at the IPL 2020 in the UAE.
“Since childhood, I have been a die-hard fan of Mumbai Indians. I would like to thank the coaches, owners, support staff for showing faith in me. I am excited to join the MI Paltan and I can’t wait to wear the blue and gold” the 21-year-old said in the video which was shared on Twitter. England batswoman Danielle Wyatt, commented on the video as well.

Arjun has been involved with the Mumbai Indians in some or another way for some time now. As Sachin played for the franchise until 2013 and has been the icon and mentor for the team since then, Arjun has got opportunities to be around the group. He had also been a ballboy in the IPL matches at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
