The stage is all set for Arjun Tendulkar, son of cricketing god Sachin Tendulkar to make his debut for the National side in the Under-19 category. Arjun, who is currently 18, has been selected to play for India Under-19 squad for two four day matches to be played against Sri Lanka in July this year. However, he could not find his spot in the one day team of the same tour. Chipping in with a brilliant 27 ball 48 with the bat and four crucial wickets with the ball in a match for cricket club of India against cricket club of Hong Kong, Arjun hit the headlines recently.
"We are happy on Arjun being selected in India U-19 team," Tendulkar senior said. Unlike his father who had enthralled the cricketing world with his batting, Arjun dons the role of an all- rounder in the team. With his selection to the Under-19 squad, Arjun would now play under the supervision of Head coach Rahul Dravid who along with his father had brought great laurels to the nation.
