People who have watched Arjun’s journey unfold from close quarters had no doubts about his batting abilities.

Subroto Banerjee, mentoring Arjun since he was just 13, knew the youngster has the skills but wasn’t expecting a hundred on debut.

In the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Arjun took 8 wickets in 7 games and returned with 10 scalps in the seven SMAT fixtures he played this year.

There were no reservations as such from Sachin. He wanted Arjun to go and play and learn.

You can only learn/improve if you play. That’s what he wanted for Arjun.
