Arjun Tendulkar, son of cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar was the cynosure of eyes at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday as he bowled to the likes of Virat Kohli and his Indian team-mates at the nets.
Watched by India head coach Ravi Shastri and bowling coach Bharat Arun, the 18-year-old Arjun bowled at the nets as soon as the team’s training session began ahead of the three-match ODI series against New Zealand.
Arjun bowled first to left-handed Shikhar Dhawan and then to Kohli. He also bowled to Ajinkya Rahane and middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav among others.
Arjun, who was named in a Mumbai U-19 squad for an invitational tournament, is a budding left-handed seamer.
