Arjun Tendulkar, son of the Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, was on Thursday appointed in the Under-19 team for 2 four-day games in Sri Lanka. Along with his choice from the team sparked many openings, together with remarks divided in favor of his decision and against.
Arjun, 18, has been chosen as a player of a 15-member squad from the nation’s junior selection committee, according to a press release by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). An all-rounder who bats and bowls left-handed, Arjun was enjoying junior cricket for Mumbai. The left-arm fast bowler has claimed 18 wickets in five national games at the Under-19 level.
Ever since Sachin has hung his boots up from the match, the spotlight has fallen on his son Arjun who’s impressed by some eye-catching performances in the national level. While many supported Arjun to continue his dad’s footsteps as he chooses his first steps towards the Indian group, others lightened the problem of nepotism once more.
