A few weeks ago, MI’s head Coach Mahela Jayawardene had opened up on Arjun’s chances of getting a game and claimed to depend on the combinations they wanted to use. “Well, I think everyone in the Squad is an option. We will see how things go. It is about match-ups and how we can win the matches and our priority is to make sure that we get the right match-ups
“Every game is a confidence thing, we managed to get our first win and it is about stringing wins together and getting the confidence back. It’s about putting the best guys in the park. If Arjun is one of them, then we will consider it, yes, but it all depends on the combination that we put out, ”said Jayawardene in a pre-match press conference.
Arjun was purchased by MI ahead at the 2021 auction for Rs. 20 lakhs but released after not playing a single game. The franchise once again purchased him for Rs. 30 lakhs in the 2022 mega auction.
