Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun has been picked for Mumbai’s under-19 squad for JY Lele All India Under-19 Invitational One Day Tournament scheduled to be played in Baroda.
He had been a part of Mumbai’s under-14 and under-16 teams earlier. The tournament is scheduled to take place from September 16 to September 23.
The left-handed player made news when he gave an injury scare to England wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow earlier in July ahead of their Test match against South Africa at Lord’s. The left-arm seamer’s first delivery was a Yorker, which ended up being a toe-crusher for Bairstow. The wicketkeeper was pinned on the foot, according to a report.
Moreover, he was seen bowling to women’s team before their World Cup finals in a video that was posted by Melinda Farrell. The caption read, “Sachin Tendulkar’s son, Arjun, is one of the net bowlers for India women today. Bowling t Veda here.” Mithali Raj-led Indian side eventually lost that match.
