Varun Aaron had pace and bounce to make life difficult for the batsmen. He, however, failed to deliver consistent performances with his skillset. Varun Aaron made his IPL debut in the year 2011, when he went on to pick up two wickets from matches, but his favourite dismissal was of Australian legend Adam Gilchrist.
Speaking about the same, Aaron said that, his favourite memory was dismissing Adam Gilchrist in his first IPL. He recalled the moment and said that he got Gilchrist bowled as the ball hit the middle stump. Adding that, he was around 20 years old back then, and the entire stadium suddenly went up on a high.
“My favourite memory would be my first IPL wicket, Adam Gilchrist. I got him bowled and it was the middle-stump. I was 19 or 20 back then and to see the whole stadium go up suddenly was a massive high. I had never felt that before,” Aaron told Sportstar.
Aaron is keen to make a comeback for Team India. The speedster believes it won’t be difficult as he is motivated to represent the national team. Though Aaron has not made an international appearance since 2015, he believes his game had evolved and he is not far away from his comeback.
Aaron went wicket-less in the Ranji Trophy 2019-20 match against Maharashtra but went on to pick up a three-wicket haul against Parvez Rasool-led Jammu & Kashmir (J&K).
On the contrary, even though India have a problem of plenty as far as their fast bowling options are concerned, Aaron is focused on himself–to excel in the foreseeable future.
The 30-year-old had made nine appearances each in Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for India. He has a decent economy of 4.77 in the longest format of the game.
