His first time out in the cash rich league saw him end his four overs with respectable figures of 1-36 as he claimed the wicket of South Africa’s white-ball captain Quinton de Kock.

Naturally, this led to some praise across social media. Fellow Rajasthan Royals teammate Ben Stokes got the ball rolling, saying the starlet had a run-up similar to Aussie great Brett Lee and his action was like that of India international Ishant Sharma.
