Arjun Tendulkar: Arjun Tendulkar, son of legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar, has been selected in the Mumbai squad for the upcoming Ranji Trophy season. The Mumbai Senior Selection Committee headed by Salil Ankola on Wednesday announced the 20-member squad.
Mumbai is scheduled to play its first match against Maharashtra from January 13. The team was selected for the first two matches. Arjun was also part of the Mumbai Indians squad for the last season of the IPL. But, he did not get a chance in a single match.
Opportunity for Arjun to replace Tushar Deshpande ..
Salil Ankola says – Arjun has been bowling well for the last while. Although injured in the middle .. he was very impressed with the opportunity to come. Mumbai veteran bowler Tushar Deshpande has been ruled out of the squad due to injury. This seems to have given Arjun a chance to replace him.
Arjun, who could not make his debut last year due to Corona, also joined the Mumbai team last year. However, the BCCI did not host the Ranji Trophy due to the Corona epidemic. This year’s Ranji Trophy matches will be played at neutral venues.
