Arjun Tendulkar helps England ahead of Australia clash
England shocking failed to chase 233 runs against Sri Lanka which has left the World cup wide open. They next face Australia on Tuesday which is the first of the three tough matches in the group stage. They are currently at the fourth place with eight points and will have to win two matches to book their spot in the top four. With the Mitchell Starc threat likely to disturb their plans, the team has roped in Arjun Tendulkar to bowl at the batsmen in the nets at the Lord’s.
Being Sachin Tendulkar’s son, Arjun is always in the limelight in whatever he does and is currently in England itself. He is playing for the MCC young cricketers at the moment and was in the news recently for bowling a brilliant delivery to castle the batsman against the Surrey’s second XI.
Sporting an orange t-shirt, Arjun could be seen bowling to England batsmen under the watchful eyes of the team’s spin bowling consultant, Saqlain Mushtaq.
This is not the first time that Arjun has bowled in the nets for England. In 2015, as a 15-year-old, he was part of the group of net bowlers which helped England prepare for the second Ashes Test against Australia.
Arjun, 19, has played for MCC Young Cricketers against Surrey Second XI, picking up two wickets in High Wycombe last week.
Bowling from over the wicket, he produced a beauty of a delivery to castle opener Nathan Tilley in just his second over.
The strapping youngster had taken 19 wickets in just five games for Mumbai Under-19 in the 2017-18 Cooch Behar Trophy.
Along with India, host England and defending champion Australia are among the favourites to win the ongoing edition of the World Cup.
