Arjun Tendulkar, son of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, has been included in India’s Under-19 team that will tour Sri Lanka next month. The team will play two four-day matches and five ODIs in Sri Lanka. However, Arjun is only named in the Four-day match squad. Arjun’s selection was on the cards all along as the left-handed all-rounder was a part of the core group of U-19 players who attended a camp at the Zonal Cricket Academy (ZCA) and played matches in Una recently.
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.
Arjun Tendulkar was recently in the news for his outstanding performance in the global Twenty20 series in Australia, organised by the Sydney Cricket Ground in January earlier this year.
The 18-year-old took four wickets in as many overs at the Bradman Oval and scored a quick-fire 48 runs off 27 balls in the match.
