Arjun Tendulkar Selected In India U-19 Squad For Sri Lanka Squad

Sachin Tendulkar

Son of cricketing legend, Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun was part of the U-19 camp that was held in Dharamsala last week.

Arjun has also represented Mumbai in U-19 cricket, having collected a five-wicket haul against Madhya Pradesh in a Cooch Behar Trophy match in November past year.

Tendulkar was selected in the squad for two four-day matches and is expected to be a vital contributor to the Indian cause in the island nation. The four-day squad will be captained by 18-year-old Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Anuj Rawat, who had scored two half-centuries, including one on debut, in as many matches for Delhi during the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy. He, however, had a poor return with the bat, scoring just 94 runs in five innings at an average of 18.80.

An all-rounder who bowls and bats left-handed, Arjun has been playing junior cricket for Mumbai.

Arjun's all-round abilities also caught the eye during Cricket Club of India's tour to Australia a year ago, where his presence in the tournament caught quite a bit of media attention. "There are many under19 cricket Players who waiting for a chance..."

Arjun was also part of the senior team's net sessions, watched by India head coach Ravi Shastri and bowling coach Bharat Arun.

The India A team's tour of Sri Lanka is scheduled for next month. "He is a slow medium bowler while Arjun is quick bowler".

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 previous year.

WV Raman will coach India under-19 team for Sri Lanka as Rahul Dravid will be flying with India A team to England.

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 U-19 squad for two four-day games: Anuj Rawat (C) (wk), Atharva Taide, Devdutt Padikkal, Aryan Juyal (VC) (wk), Yash Rathod, Ayush Badoni, Sameer Choudhary, Siddharth Desai, Harsh Tyagi, Y.D. Mangwani, Arjun Tendulkar, Nehal Wadhera, Akash Pande, Mohit Jangra and Pawan Shah.
