Arjun Tendulkar makes debut as Mumbai crash out
PTI Adds: Budding left-arm pacer Arjun Tendulkar, who is the son of iconic former batsman Sachin Tendulkar, made his Mumbai senior team debut on Friday in a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match against Haryana, which the hosts lost by eight wickets in Mumbai. In the Elite Group E clash played at the suburban BKC ground, Mumbai made 143 after opting to bat first, a target which Haryana overhauled in 17.4 overs. Arjun had an off day with the ball as he returned with rather unimpressive figures of 1/34 in the three overs that he bowled. He dismissed Haryana opener Chaitya Bishnoi (4) cheaply after he edged a delivery to wicket-keeper Aditya Tare to claim his maiden wicket for the Mumbai senior team. Incidentally, his legendary father’s last Ranji Trophy game was against Haryana back in 2013.
Arjun didn’t get the chance to face a single delivery when Mumbai batted as the team was bundled out in 19.3 overs. Haryana then rode on one-down Himanshu Rana’s blazing unbeaten 75 off 53 balls to chase down the target with consummate ease. The 21-year-old Arjun has now qualified for the IPL auctions, as he has made his debut for the Mumbai team. Tendulkar junior was added to the Mumbai squad, along with another pacer Krutik Hanagavadi, by the Salil Ankola-led selection committee, after the BCCI permitted a total of 22 players to be selected. 
Over the years, Arjun has been playing age-group tournaments for Mumbai and has also been a part of the team, which plays invitational tournaments. The budding pacer has been seen bowling to the Indian national team in the nets and also represented the India U-19 team, when it toured Sri Lanka in 2018.
