Arjun Tendulkar selected in Mumbai U-19 squad

Recommended Posts

Quote

Arjun Tendulkar, son of Sachin Tendulkar, has been selected for the Mumbai Under-19 one-day side for the JY Lele invitational tournament to be played in Baroda from September 16 to 23. Arjun, who has also represented Mumbai in Under-16 cricket in 2015-16, will turn 18 on September 24. Although not a BCCI tournament, the team will represent the Mumbai Cricket Association, which could be a step closer to selection for official U-19 cricket.

A left-arm quick, Arjun recently bowled in the nets in the lead-up to the Lord's Test between England and South Africa, sending Jonny Bairstow off with an injury scare when he hit him on the toe with a yorker. He has also bowled in India nets previously.

A day after his selection on Saturday, Arjun played an important part in helping Parel CC draw their Kanga League B division match at Shivaji Park. He batted an hour for 15 runs, and returned figures of 1 for 14 in five overs. One of the opposition batsmen was former Mumbai wicketkeeper-batsman and coach Sulakshan Kulkarni.

"I faced Arjun, and it seems he is an aggressive bowler," Kulkarni told Mid-Day."The more he bowls the better he will get."

Arjun's father, Sachin Tendulkar has in the past asked to spare his son any comparisons.

"I am not interfering in his career because I think it is not fair," Sachin told Economic Times in April 2016. "He has to have freedom to express himself. I can guide him. Not on a regular basis, but when I feel that he needs to be told something, then I do. I don't take his class every evening when he comes back home. I do not want to lecture, but let him enjoy the game and fall in love with cricket, which he is (doing). I have told him things about hard work like any father would.

"Unfortunately, he has the excess baggage of his surname and I know that is going to be there. It is not easy for him. For me, it was different as my father was a writer and nobody questioned me on cricket. I feel that my son should not be compared to me and should be judged for who he is."

Somehow i feel child of famous person is always at more disadvantage than other kids.

 

Case in example Abhishek Bachaan. People will always compare him/her with there great parents and hence, they always be considered as non deserving or sifarshi.

 

They might get more opportunities than other kids but surely they need to prove more than other kids to be considered as good.

 

Also, they will always be under more pressure to perform than normal kids.

 

So, all in all in my opinion Star kids are at an advantage to get opportunities but they will under more pressure to prove themselves.

I feel there is hardly any disadvantage in being a celebrity offsprings. It is more a case of ' what have they got to lose' .

Yes rarely anyone would acknowledge the privilege they are used to. you get a real big boost to start your career. Then your talent will take you from there. But most people never even get that opportunity.

Arjun Tendulkar getting so much advantage over other kids, gets to do nets against international players, gets coaching from Tendu himself, use of best equipment and facility, money never an issue,

but good luck to him, as long as he performs and progresses on merit then can't complain 

 

but what is this selection? He got picked for an unofficial U19 Mumbai side? So any merit in playing for this side? Or even worth the news, seems more PR to get mentioned in cricinfo

I hope he is successful . I hope he is the best. I hope there is no preferential treatment. Odds are against him. How tall is he? Does he have the correct twitch muscles? What is his pace? Good luck to him and hope whatever he does is strictly based on merit.

So far, he has performed at the level of a u-19 Stuart Binny.   At least he's trying as a bowler/allrounder - a role that India historically does not have too many good players.   If he was trying as a batsman, he would have absolutely no shot.  

 

Let the kid be, this is not even a full-fledged Mumbai u-19 selection - if he gets into FC cricket unfairly then we can all criticize him as will be the fashion.  He's just a kid, and sure he's definitely benefiting from getting exposure to top coaching, int'l nets, etc due to his background.  But that's not a crime.

Lets not discard him. He is a bowler who has been working hard in English condition. So all in all, what he needs to do is make his selection worth.

Since he is a bowler, It works in his favour as he doesnt have a benchmark as his dad. Good luck to him and hope he does very well.

He is tall 6 feet plus. He is just 17 to know gauge his pace.

If Struat Binny can make it to national team then why not Arjun Tendulkar to U-19 Mumbai squad?

both are wrong, if done over an other deserving candidate. Its called nepotism if the ward is not skillful, we will see abt Arjun.

Played 1 match

 

http://www.mumbaicricket.com/mca/Score_Sheet_U19_Vinoo_Mankad_Trophy_2017_2018_Mumbai_Baroda_09102017.php

 

Scored 4 runs when side got bowled out for 143, bowling 1-21 in 2 overs. 

Second match is going on. went at 10 rpo in first game, close to 10 rpo in second. He bats very low, which shows his main suit is bowling. He was mostly expensive even in JY Lele tournament too. He will really have to work really hard on his bowling. He certainly seems to have talent for fast bowling but Subroto Bannerjee, his bowling coach, has a real task in his hand.

Action looks poor. Losing all momentum on landing. Currently only using arm rotation to produce watever speed he is producing. Sachin probably should get him to work with Ian Pont to clean up the action.

there aren't a lot of problems wit his action. He needs to improve the use of non-bowling hand.

Hard to think he can produce any sort of speed with this action. Watch the action from sideways in the above posted video from 0:24 to 0:27.

Let's see how he does, credit to him he loves the game n took up bowling instead, he is tall n looks strong, action is natural, give him time, his father cannot bat or bowl for him, he has to do it on the field, certainly not an early bloomer like his dad, but bowlers mature late, let's hope we have an all rounder some day, bats like Sachin n bowls like Zak , lol.

if his use of right hand gets better, he will bowl quicker.

Seems like the next big thing for India. Its time to start his painting when ever he reaches the International stage. Has the blood of a run scoring machine. Most likely programmed to score hundreds every innings.

Totally raw at this time, should do fine in few years. If he can get Tendulkar work ethics, he can be really good. Unlike Gavaskar, Tendulkar isn’t a full time , commentator so may be he can spend time coaching him. 

 

Will probabaly go on to play for India.

 

 

subroto bannrjee is his bowling coach
