  • Arjun Tendulkar

Arjun, who will turn 19 this September, is living his father's dream. Plus, he can swing the ball both ways. He is also primarily a lower-middle-order batsman, but is working hard on what his coaches believe is his "secondary skillset" now.

Meanwhile, Mumbai U-19 coach Satish Samant told The Indian Express that Arjun had improved a lot in the recent past and has added a lot of variety to his bowling. Arjun can be spotted at the cricket events with his father and at a very young age Sachin Tendulkar made him join a cricket club. "Watch his cricket and see for yourself", said Gaikwad.

Arjun was part of the main group of U-19 cricketers that attended a camp in Zonal Cricket Academy (ZCA) and played matches in Una. However, one could simply not avoid the inevitable nepotism-centred theme surrounding Arjun's selection.

Devdutt Padikkal (KSCA): The Karnataka cricketer, Devdutt Padikkal, who plays for Bellary Tuskers in the Karnataka Premier League, has been included in the squad. With 18 wickets in five Cooch Behar Trophy matches, he was moderately successful in the junior circuit in the 2017-18 domestic season. The youngster has also played for Mumbai U-19, and based on those performances we believe he has got a call-up.


What are the factors that have contributed to Arjun's rise? But Tendulkar Junior would know that he has a hard journey ahead. If he develops and improves his game according to expectations, he is expected to be a future member of the Indian worldwide side with players of his skill set being a rare commodity in the global circuit.

It was during one of these sessions that Arjun yorked Jonny Bairstow to cause an injury scare ahead of the Test match against South Africa at Lord's past year. Arjun also bowled in the India nets during the home series against New Zealand previous year.

His first major breakthrough came previous year when he was been picked in Mumbai's U-19 one-day side for the JY Lele invitational tournament.

The first four-day game will be played at Chilaw Marians Ground in Katunayake from July 16-19 followed by the second game (July 23-26) in Hambantota at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium.
