Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun forays into India U-19 squad

Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun forays into India U-19 squad

What skills does Arjun Tendulkar have? While Tendulkar Sr. was the greatest batsman ever to play the game, Arjun is left-handed fast medium bowler, who can bat a bit. He is also a regular net bowler for the Indian team, whenever they play in Mumbai and also bowled to the India women's team ahead of their World Cup final against England at Lord's previous year.

While batting legend Tendulkar expressed his delight at Arjun's selection, calling it an "important milestone in his cricketing life", a few cricket fans were up in arms, claiming nepotism. In July 2017, Arjun also represented an MCC squad that faced Namibia U-19 side in England, where he picked up four wickets in his first match. Arjun picked up 19 wickets in five matches, including two five-wicket hauls, for Mumbai Under-19 in the 2017-18 Cooch Behar Trophy. "Anjali and I will always support Arjun in his choices and pray for his success".

Also in a zonal U-19 match between West and South Zone at Una, Tendulkar junior got 4 for 37 including three wickets in one spell.




India Under-19 squad for four-day games in Sri Lanka: Anuj Rawat (c & wk, Delhi), Aryan Juyal (vc & wk, Uttar Pradesh), Atharva Taide (Vidarbha), Devdutt Padikkal (Karnataka), Yash Rathod (Vidarbha), Ayush Badoni (Delhi), Sameer Choudhary (Uttar Pradesh), Siddharth Desai (Gujarat), Harsh Tyagi (Delhi), YD Mangwani (Maharashtra), Arjun Tendulkar (Mumbai), Nehal Wadhera (Punjab), Akash Pande (Gujarat), Mohit Jangra (Uttar Pradesh), Pawan Shah (Maharashtra). Asked if the youngster will be under pressure, the senior official said: "He is eyeing to become a professional cricketer".

"And I just loved bowling fast in my childhood". He is another member of this Indian squad and he will have to perform. He had also bowled in the India nets during the home series against New Zealand previous year. His performance with the ball in the Delhi Daredevils School Cup T20 match, in which the left-arm spinner took a fifer in 2.3 overs without giving away a single run, made him come under the selector's radar.

Also, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and World Cup-winning U-19 coach Rahul Dravid had directed the selection committee not to pick boys who will surpass 19 by the end of the year. Tendulkar didn't get to bat in the second innings and the match eventually ended in a draw.
