His maternal grandparents are Anand Mehta, a Gujarati industrialist, and Annabel Mehta (née Lancaster), an English philanthropist who was awarded the Order of the British Empire for her service to underprivileged communities in Mumbai.[7]


His under-19 debut for India was against Sri Lanka in 2018.[8] He made his T20 debut on 15 January 2021, for Mumbai in the 2020–21 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy against Haryana.[9] On debut, he took 1/34 off three overs.[2]

He was included in Mumbai's 22-man Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy squad.[12] However, he was later ruled out of the 2021 IPL due to injury.[13] In February 2022, he was again brought by the MI, this time in the auction for the IPL 2022 tournament.[14] In August 2022, he quit Mumbai to join Goa ahead of the domestic season. He is playing for them in 2022–23 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.[3]
