IPL 2023: Arjun Tendulkar, who made his debut for Mumbai Indians in this season, has taken 3 wickets in 4 matches so far. In the last match against Gujarat Titans too, he had achieved a success by giving 9 runs in 2 overs.
New Delhi: Arjun Tendulkar The name really says it all. This name is getting maximum headlines in IPL 2023. Not just because he is the son of great Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar, but because he has impressed with his bowling so far. Arjun has attracted attention with his yorkers and bouncers but there is one aspect which is being considered as a weakness. This is their speed and the New Zealand police have taken up the task of increasing it.
Now how will the policeman increase Arjun’s speed? This question must be arising in your mind as well. Will tell you further about this. First let’s talk a little on Arjun’s speed. Arjun’s yorker and slow bouncer, who made his debut in IPL, have proved to be very effective. However, the speed of most of his balls has been between 120 to 130 kilometers per hour.

The low speed of Arjun’s balls has been a topic of constant discussion and experts have also said that Arjun needs to increase his pace a bit to achieve success. The responsibility of this has now been taken up by the New Zealand police. We are talking about veteran fast bowler Shane Bond, who is also the bowling coach of Mumbai Indians. One of the fastest bowlers of his time, Bond used to do police work before becoming a cricketer.
