Arjun Tendulkar breaks into India U-19 squad

New Delhi, June 7: Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar has found a place in the India Under-19 squad for the two four-day matches in Sri Lanka next month. Arjun, a left-arm seamer, was a part of the Mumbai Under-19 squad last year in the Cooch Behar Trophy where he impressed with 18 wickets.

The 18-year-old has also regularly featured in net sessions involving international teams in recent times including the one in England where he yorked Jonny Bairstow to cause an injury scare ahead of the Test match against South Africa at Lord’s last year.

Arjun has only been named in the four-day squad, which will be led by Delhi’s Anuj Rawat. IANS
