Arjun Tendulkar, son of former legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar, was seen helping England prepare for their next match in the World Cup. Tendulkar has also gained pace in the recent past was bowling to England batsmen as a net bowler. The southpaw seamer is seen bowling to England Test captain Joe Root and his run-up was watched by England spin coach Saqlain Mushtaq.
In fact, Arjun Tendulkar has also bowled to England players as a net bowler a couple of years. The lanky fast bowler had also bowled a crunchy yorker to Jonny Bairstow. Thus, Tendulkar is getting all the exposure to the highest level.
Great opportunity for Tendulkar.
Meanwhile, Arjun (19), had played for MCC Young Cricketers against Surrey Second XI. He had scalped two wickets in High Wycombe last week. The left-arm seamer had castled Nathan Tilley in his second over. Furthermore, he had also got the wicket of BBA Geddes. Hence, Arjun Tendulkar had returned with the figures of 11-2-50-2.
Arjun Tendulkar had represented Under-19 team which had toured Sri Lanka for two four-day matches for youth Test. Moreover, he had played for Aakash Tigers in Mumbai T20 league.
On the other hand, England will face arch-rivals Australia at Lord’s, London on 25th June. England had lost their previous match as they were stunned by Sri Lanka by 20 runs. Ergo, Eoin Morgan-led side will like to turn the tables against their nemesis.
England has won four matches out of the six they have played. The English side is one of the favourites for the World Cup. But they have lost their matches against Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Furthermore, they have a tough job at hand as their next three matches are against Australia, India and New Zealand.
Meanwhile, Australia is looking good to qualify for the semifinals as they have won five matches out of the six they have played.
