IPL: Arjun Tendulkar, son of the great Sachin Tendulkar, bought by Mumbai Indians

Arjun Tendulkar, son of the great Sachin Tendulkar, was bought by Mumbai Indians for his base price of Rs 20 lakhs. Tendulkar was expected to represent his father from 2008 to 2013. Arjun is a left-handed batsman and left-arm medium pacer, who played two matches for Mumbai in the recently concluded 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Arjun played his wicket with an innings of 77 from 31 balls and then returned to MIG Cricket Club 3-41 at the 73rd Police Invitation Shield tournament in February. He made his Under-19 debut for India in the Youth Test Series against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2018. Arjun has also played for Mumbai Under-19, Under-16 and Under-14 teams in the past. During the 2017-18 Cooch Behar Trophy, Arjun took 19 wickets in 5 matches, taking two five wickets.

Arjun was also part of the MCC team which played two matches against Namibia Under-19 in England. He has been a regular feature in the Indian nets for Indian bowlers, which has given him a very good performance in the country.

Arjun attended an NCA residential camp in Dharamshala and was impressed with his speed and accuracy during the Academy Games in Himachal Pradesh. In January 2017, he represented a CCI XI at Bradman Oval in Adelaide, where he scored 48 runs as an opener and returned with four wickets with the ball.

His idols are Michelle Stark and Ben Stokes. Arjun has worked with a PhD in Biomechanics with NCA Level-3 coach Atul Gaikwad, who has worked at the Brisbane Center of Excellence. Arjun has also worked with former India fast bowler Subroto Banerjee.
