Player Bio

The burden of the surname is always going to play a part in his career but going forward Arjun Tendulkar has to accept the fact that nothing can be done about that. Arjun is a bright young talent and ever since being picked by the Mumbai Indians in the Mini Auction for IPL 2021, he has been under immense pressure as criticism has flown in from several quarters at his inclusion in the squad. The Mumbai Indians team management made it pretty clear that Arjun was picked on the basis of his talent and not his surname. 


The rise of Arjun hasn’t been rapid and at the age of 21, he is still trying to find his feet in professional cricket. Quite naturally, Arjun took a liking to cricket at an early age and was taken for professional coaching in 2008. Soon the left-arm pacer and a handy lower middle-order batsman, Arjun played his first professional game back in 2010 at a U-13 tournament. 


It was back in November 2011 that the young Tendulkar hogged the limelight during a school game when he finished with figures of 8/22 while playing for his school Dhirubhai International Public School. 


He smashed his maiden professional century in 2013 for the Khar Gymkhana in a U-14 match. It was in July 2018 that Arjun received his maiden international call-up when he was picked in the Indian U19 squad for the youth Test series against Sri Lanka. He made an immediate impact and bagged the wicket of Kamil Mishara to start off his international youth career with a bang. 


Arjun was then drafted into the Mumbai squad for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in 2020-21 against Haryana and played two matches in the tournament. He picked a wicket each in those two matches but was not that impressive with the bat.


That said, Junior Tendulkar is a useful batsman who can hit the long ball but hasn’t managed to make a substantial contribution in big matches. 


Over the years he has got the exposure of bowling to the England national team in the nets in England and has also been a net bowler for India on quite a few occasions. The upcoming experience of rubbing shoulders with some of the greats of the game in the IPL will be ideal for the 21-year-old and Mumbai Indians might just be the opportunity which he would have wanted in order to make substantial progress in his career.
