- Arjun Tendulkar bowling against Sri Lanka U-19 and getting his first scalp in just two overs is all over India cricket news today
- India U-19 are set to play two Youth Test matches in Sri Lanka, and Arjun’s feat is already given way to celebration in latest cricket news live
Arjun Tendulkar seems to have become a hot-topic in latest cricket news live after making his debut for the India U-19 team. Earlier, when he was selected for the U-19 team, there had been a lot of criticism coming over from all quarters of the Indian cricket circles, squalling that the selection committee was ignoring other talents in favor of the Tendulkar blood. However, just as Sachin Tendulkar used to do back in his ‘heyday’, Arjun Tendulkar did well to make his critics go silent after displaying cricketing prowess and guile on the cricket field against Sri Lanka U-19. Arjun Tendulkar bowling top-speed is a view that would baffle every cricket fan, as it did Sri Lanka batsman Kamil Mishara, in just the first two overs.
While one might expect Arjun Tendulkar to be an explosive batsman just like his father, the 18-year-old is an lean and mean left-arm pacer. Entering the India cricket news today were the reports of Arjun Tendulkar bowling the opening overs for India U-19, against Sri Lanka U-19.
Arjun Tendulkar registers his first wicket for India U-19, dismisses Sri Lanka U-19 prodigy
In the first match of the Youth Test match which is being hosted at the Nondescripts Cricket Club Ground in Colombo, Sri Lanka, the home-team won the toss and sent India to bowl, something which is still fresh in latest cricket news live. Indian team captain Anuj Rawat sent Arjun Tendulkar to bowl the opening overs of the match. And much to the glee of the skipper, Arjun Tendulkar bowling the fresh ball saw Sri Lanka losing their first wicket in the last ball of the second over.
As reported by DNA India in India cricket news today, Arjun trapped the Sri Lanka batsman Kamil Mishara, who is considered a prodigy in the ‘island nation’, in front of the wicket to register his first wicket for India U-19. Mishara had made his first-class debut for Sri Lanka at 15 years of age, and could only score 11 runs off 9 balls before Arjun Tendulkar bowling sent the batsman back to the pavilion.
In the run-up to the two Youth Tests that India U-19 are set to play, Arjun Tendulkar was seen quite a few times bowling in the nets, sometimes to legends and even to the Indian team captain Virat Kohli, and was making rounds in India cricket news for the same reason.
However, while there were some people crying foul in latest cricket news, about Arjun Tendulkar’s selection in India U-19, bowling coach Sanath Kumar had clarified, “he (Arjun Tendulkar) will be like any other member of the team”.
Speaking after Arjun Tendulkar’s selection to India U-19, Sanath Kumar had said that although the topic had become a favorite in India cricket news, it was not a concern for the coaches and team management. He had said, “I don’t know about that as it’s not my area of concern but as a coach, all the boys are equal for me. For me, Arjun is no different from other kids. My job is to bring the best out of each and every one of them.”
