Sachin Tendulkar Says Will Always Support Son Arjun In His Choices

Arjun was part of a group of 25 U-19 cricketers who were reportedly selected to attend a camp as part of Zonal Cricket Academy in Dharamsala in the lead up to the Sri Lanka tour.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) senior official Rajiv Shukla also congratulated Arjun Tendulkar. 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. There were many who defended Arjun's selection as he had registered impressive bowling figures over the past season, getting 18 wickets in nine games.

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 previous year.

"A lot of people don't know U-19 zonals are happening at Una and Arjun has done well there".

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. One Twitetr user Ganeshan Iyer wrote, "Arjun Tendulkar is an average bowler".

Capitals win Stanley Cup, defeat Golden Knights in Game 5 of Final
I was personally very low on him this season since he gave up over three goals per game, but has looked elite in the playoffs. Capitals fans converged Tuesday at Bar Louie in Rockville for Game 4 and saw their team beat the Vegas Golden Knights , 6-2.


However, Arjun Tendulkar was able to break into the Under-19 team.

Arjun has trained under former India fast bowler Subroto Banerjee, a close friend of Tendulkar. "Anjali (Tendulkar) and I will always support Arjun in his choices and pray for his success", Tendulkar told news agency ANI. Arjun also bowled in the India nets during the home series against New Zealand past year. "The selectors have given him a chance looking at his potential".

Arjun, though, couldn't break into the one-day squad for the Sri Lanka tour, which will be led by Aryan Juyal.

"Juyal is very young and has not graduated to first class level". With the Indian "A" team scheduled to tour England during the same period, WV Raman will take over the coaching duties from Under-19 World Cup winning coach Rahul Dravid. "So it's better he gets some match practice", the source said.
