Arjun Tendulkar, a left-handed fast bowler for Mumbai Indians (MI) is one of the upcoming players in the domestic circuit. But people know him as the son of the greatest ever batsman the history of cricket has ever seen, none other than, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Arjun used to practice with his dad more often than not when he developed a love for cricket just like his father.
Arjun is playing with the Mumbai Indians and was bought for INR 30 Lakh in the IPL mega auction. He was previously bought by the Mumbai Indians in the 2021 season for INR 20 Lakh. People are eagerly waiting for Arjun to make his debut for the Mumbai Indians and would want to see how he performs on the biggest stage.
Arjun has been doing well in training and was seen bowling to his Mumbai Indians teammate. Arjun Tendulkar cleaned the batter up and bowled him over with absolute class. It was a moment that Arjun might cherish for a while and would be hoping to take bigger scalps in the near future.

Will Arjun feature in MI’s Playing XI?
Arjun has a great seam and under the guidance of Zaheer Khan and other greats like Jasprit Bumrah and Shane Bond. He can be given a chance this season if he continues performing well in training.
Mumbai Indians have lost their first seven games of the season, an unwanted record to their name. Their bowling attack is in absolute shambles and Bumrah is the only consistent bowler in their attack. Without Jofra Archer, Mumbai look weak and might look to give youngsters a few chances to prove their worth on the mega stage.
Only time will tell if Arjun Tendulkar can live up to the expectations of the people and can he be on the path of cricket like his father.
