Son of renowned cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun was seen bowling to the England batsmen during their net session at Lord’s. The tall lanky pacer is expected to help the team prepare for Mitchell Starc, who has set the tournament ablaze with his bowling.

This marks the second occasion where Arjun has bowled in the nets for the England team. He previously bowled to the members ahead of the second Ashes test as a fifteen-year-old in 2015.

The left arm allrounder, who is 19 years old, is marking his presence in the Mumbai domestic circuit with his participation in the Cooch Behar Trophy and the recently concluded Mumbai T20 League, where he represented Akash Tigers. The youngster was also involved in the U-19 tour to Sri Lanka.
