Mumbai Indians have named 20-year-old left-arm fast bowler Marco Jenson in the team in the first match. Jenson of South Africa is 6 feet 8 inches tall and has also troubled RCB captain Virat Kohli in the nets 3 years ago. Not only this, he also bowled Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya during practice in the nets.
In 2018, Kohli was harassed by Marco Jensen
Jansen was selected to bowl in India’s nets on the South African tour in 2018. The Indian team, which has been practicing for 2 days in the nets at the Wanderers Stadium, was bowling 2 boys under-20. His balls had speed as well as swing. The two bowlers were none other than twin brothers Marco Jensen and Duan Jensen.
Rohit and Hardik were bowled by Marco.
Both bowlers troubled Virat, who scored 153 runs in the second Test against South Africa, in the nets. Both of them also bowled Rohit and Hardik during practice. His bowling was also watching the person sitting near the nets. The person was happy when both these bowlers bowled well.

Couce said that Claude, the coach of the under-17 team Dragons, had called the two twin brothers to get Team India to practice. The Indian squad also praised both these brothers. Kous told that when Jenson bowled the third ball during the practice session, Kohli said good ball.
Till Kohli batted, Marco kept bowling
Kous, a manager in a private company, said that both had school on the day of practice. Both took leave after bowling in the Nets. It was a dream come true. We live in Pochestram, about 150 kilometers from Johannesburg. Kous said that as long as Kohli kept batting, both of them kept bowling. The senior bowler of the Highveld Lions, the home team of Johannesburg, was resting, while both of them continued to bowl.

After the practice session, Duan and Marco had said that Dravid told us to work hard and not lose focus.
