Sachin Tendulkar Says Will Always Support Son Arjun In His Choices

Arjun Tendulkar played in five of the six games and took 18 wickets, including two five-fors and a four-wicket haul in the Cooch Behar tournament

Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun Tendulkar has found a place in the India Under-19 squad for the two four-day matches in Sri Lanka next month. "Anjali and I will always support Arjun in his choices and pray for his success", said Sachin exclusively to SportsTak. Both his five-wicket hauls included the wickets of the opposition's top four batsmen. Unlike his father, Arjun falls more in the bracket of a bowling all-rounder.

Arjun with his tally of 18 wickets from five Cooch Behar Trophy (National U-19) games is 43rd in the list of wicket-takers for the season.

Delhi's Anuj Rawat will lead the side in the four-day format while Aryan Juyal has been named skipper for the limited-overs ties. One Twitetr user Ganeshan Iyer wrote, "Arjun Tendulkar is an average bowler".

Arjun's all-round abilities also caught the eye during Cricket Club of India's tour to Australia past year, where his presence in the tournament caught quite a bit of media attention.

Google's $130 (£105) Home speaker is triggered by the phrase "Hey Google" while Amazon's Echo uses "Alexa". The Amazon Fire TV Cube features eight microphones embedded deep within to listen to user's commands.

Arjun was part of the core group of U-19 cricketers who were attending the camp in Zonal Cricket Academy (ZCA) and played matches in Una.

His coach and former India worldwide, Subroto Banerjee, had told Sportstar earlier that it is the dedication and hard work that has worked well for Arjun. He is another member of this Indian squad and he will have to perform.

Another user Pradeep Kumar S tweeted, " let's give him a chance before concluding that he is in the team because of Sachin Tendulkar". "So it's better he gets some match practice", the source said. Interestingly, he will groomed under Rahul Dravid now who is the coach of the U19 team which won the World Cup earlier this year.
