Arjun Tendulkar, son of legendary Sachin Tendulkar, is helping the Indian team practice ahead of the second Test match against England at Lord's. Arjun, who is a left-arm fast bowler, has recently impressed everyone with his pace and swing when he made his India U-19 debut against Sri Lanka U-19 team. Arjun had a memorable debut against Sri Lanka U-19, picking his maiden wicket on the first day. However, he is not part of the one-day team, which is currently playing against Sri Lanka U-19 in the Youth ODI series.
Arjun is currently spending time in London and was found bowling to the Indian batsmen ahead of the Lord's Test.
In the first Test at Edgbaston, Indian batsmen, except skipper Virat Kohli, struggled miserably against the English pace attack. The 20-year-old left-arm pacer Sam Curran was on fire in the first innings and he destroyed India's top order on his own. This must be a smart strategy by the Indian team management to ask Arjun to bowl at Indian batsman as the visitors do not have any left-arm pacer in the squad.
Arjun bowled with aggression at the practice session and troubled Indian batsmen with his quick pace. He bowled to Murali Vijay who struggled in the first Test and was out cheaply on both the innings.
This is not the first time Arjun spent time with the Indian players. On many previous occasions, Arjun has displayed his talent in front of the senior players.
BCCI also posted a video of Kohli practising hard at the nets and working on his shots as he and his men look to make a comeback at Lord's following their 31-run loss against England in Edgbaston.
