Arjun Tendulkar selected for India Under-19 squad

Arjun Tendulkar selected for India Under-19 squad

Sachin Tendulkar expressed his happiness over the selection of his son Arjun Tendulkar in the Indian under 19 team. The question was when will it happen? Arjun has a record of 18 wickets from five Cooch Behar Trophy (National U-19) games. Arjun, however, could not find a place in the one-day squad which will play five matches against the Island nation.

Keeping the direction in mind, the selection committee did not pick Himachal Pradesh's Ayush Jamwal, who ended up with 50 wickets in the Cooch Behar Trophy a year ago, according to the news daily. At that time Sachin also made a plea to let Arjun play the sport like a normal young cricketer and not burden him with scrutiny. "Anjali and I will always support Arjun in his choices and pray for his success", Sachin said.

Trump lashes out at 'very dishonest & weak' G7 chairman Trudeau
But Trump had already said he would not hesitate to shut countries out of the U.S. market if they retaliate to his tariffs. President Trump leaves the G-7 summit after holding a press conference in the Canadian resort town of La Malbaie .

While most of the aspiring cricketers quote his father Sachin Tendulkar as their role model, Arjun counts Australian Mitchell Starc and English all-rounder Ben Stokes as his role models. He attracted added attention when he struck Jonny Bairstow on the toe with a yorker. He also bowled to the India women's team ahead of their World Cup final against England at Lord's past year. This is a big break of sorts for the 18-year-old who has been in the reckoning for junior teams for sometime now.

Yash Rathod (VCA): Yash Rathod, the middle-order batsman for Vidarbha U-19 squad, helped his side in lifting the Cooch Behar Trophy a year ago. Dravid wants them to play Ranji Trophy instead. "So a lot of boys ahead of Arjun are disqualified". Unlike his father who was a legendary batsman, Arjun is a seam bowler who bowls with his left arm. The team will play five one-day global matches and two four-day matches in Sri Lanka in July. "He is a slow medium bowler while Arjun is a quick bowler". He is another member of this Indian squad and he will have to perform. His performance with the ball in the Delhi Daredevils School Cup T20 match, in which the left-arm spinner took a fifer in 2.3 overs without giving away a single run, made him come under the selector's radar. The team will be coached by former India batsman WV Raman, with Rahul Dravid away for India A tour to England.
