Arjun Tendulkar Selected For India Under-19 Squad For Sri Lanka Tour
Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar was named in the India Under-19 cricket team for the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka beginning next month, a BCCI media release said on Thursday. The Indian team is scheduled to play four-day and one-day matches in Sri Lanka in July. The all-rounder has been picked for the two four-day matches that India will play against Sri Lanka. Arjun
was part of the main group of U-19 cricketers attended the camp in Zonal Cricket Academy (ZCA) and played matches in Una. India will travel to Sri Lanka next month for the series. The four-day squad will be led by Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Anuj Rawat who made his first-class debut for Delhi in the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy season on October 2017. He was earlier picked for the U-19 Asia Cup 2017.
The one-day squad will be led by Aryan Juyal, who had made his List A debut for Uttar Pradesh in Vijay Hazare Trophy.
The 18-year-old Arjun is a left-arm medium pacer and a left-hand batsman. He was part of a group of 25 U-19 cricketers who were in Dharamsala in April this year for a month-long camp.
The six-foot plus Arjun counts Australian left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc and England allrounder Ben Stokes among his role models.
Earlier this year, Arjun made headlines with a sparkling debut in the Spirit of Cricket Global Challenge in Australia.
Playing for Cricketer’s Club of India against Hong Kong Cricket Club in a T20 match at the Bradman Oval, Arjun produced an eye-catching all-round performance as he clubbed 48 runs off 27 deliveries as an opener and also picked up four wickets in four overs.
