VINOD MANKAD TROPHY:
Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun to play for Mumbai U-19
Reports has it that Arjun Tendulkar, son of Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, has been included in the Mumbai U-19 squad for the Vinoo Mankad Trophy.
As per source, the Vedant Murkar-led team kick-started its campaign against Gujarat on October 6. The India U-19 pacer was earlier named in the junior national team for the U-19 Tests against Sri Lanka in the month of July. In the two-match series, the left-arm pacer picked up three wickets in four innings.
Arjun will be not be entitled to play in the next junior World Cup in 2020 and has not been included in the squad for the one-day series as he is already 19. Due to the same reason, he isn’t a member of the team for the ongoing Asia Cup as well.
However, if Arjun continues to improve, one can expect to see him in the senior Mumbai team soon.
