'God of Cricket' Sachin Tendulkar trolled for alleged nepotism

Arjun Tendulkar

Arjun has had the privilege of training against some of the big names in world cricket as he had been the net bowler for Team India during their overseas tours of England and Australia. He now has 29 wickets from five first-class matches and three scalps from as many one-day matches. Nearly five years after Sachin Tendulkar played his final match for India, his son, Arjun, has been named in India's Under-19 squad that will tour Sri Lanka in July for two four-day games.

Apart from Gaikwad, Arjun also works on a one-on-one basis with former India fast bowler Subroto Banerjee, who, till recently was a bowling consultant with the Ranji Trophy winning Vidarbha side.

The 18-year-old has also regularly featured in net sessions involving worldwide 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 is not part of the one-day squad.

Pederson said he didn't have to address the issue with the team. "We weren't going to let someone try and formulate an agenda". Trump had written on Twitter , "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team". "We're united.

Arjun was part of a group of 25 U-19 cricketers who were reportedly selected to attend a camp as part of Zonal Cricket Academy in Dharamsala in the lead up to the Sri Lanka tour. Although, the left-arm pacer doesn't have stats to prove his credential, a tally of 18 wickets from five Cooch Behar Trophy (National U-19) and 43rd in the list of wicket-takers for the season, he certainly seems to have done enough to impress the selectors. Arjun is already 18 years old which suggests that there will be no special treatment for him as far as his selection in the senior team is concerned and will go through the process. Most of the bowlers above him are spinners with only Ajay Dev Goud (33 wickets) being a genuine all-rounder. "He is a slow medium bowler while Arjun is a quick bowler". "So a lot of boys ahead of Arjun are disqualified". He is another member of this Indian squad and he will have to perform. The 18-year-old, who has made his presence felt on the field by often tagging along and practising with his ingenious father, is now part of a squad that will play two four-day matches in July. Another user Pradeep Kumar S tweeted, " let's give him a chance before concluding that he is in the team because of Sachin Tendulkar". Arjun's action has had to be remodelled after he suffered from two stress fractures that ruled him out of cricket for close to a year in 2016-17. While Arjun, a left-arm fast bowler, has got a place in the four-day squad, he is not featuring in the limited-overs squad.

WV Raman has been given an extension and will be the coach of this team as Dravid will be with the A squad in England.
