Chennai Super Kings: The MS Dhoni-led side finished last in 2020 and they want to turn it around. The CEO of CSK has made it clear that youth would be the way ahead for a franchise that has often been criticised for backing experienced players. Arjun is a left-arm seamer and the natural angle that he can create could be something CSK could look to make the most of in the future.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: With no left-arm seamers in the ranks, RCB is another side that could look to have Arjun on their side. Arjun could be of great help for them if the RCB batsmen want to face left-arm seam in the nets to prepare ahead of a game.
Arjun has played for India U-19 and has recently made his domestic debut as well, would be interesting to see if he gets a IPL call-up.
