Arjun has bowled at the India nets in the recent past while also taking part in a camp for fast bowlers organised by the BCCI at Dharamsala.

Meanwhile, speaking on his son’s achievement the ‘Master Blaster’ was a happy man.

“We are happy on Arjun being selected in India U-19 team. It is an important milestone in his cricketing life. Anjali (Tendulkar) and I will always support Arjun in his choices and pray for his success,” he said.
