Indian cricketers took part in their first practice session in England on Monday. During practice, Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar bowled to batsmen of Kohli and company. Team India’s Head coach Ravi Shastri also instructed with some important tips to the 18-year-old left-arm fast bowler.
Arjun has also been practicing with team India even before. Last year he also bowled in the England Test team’s practice session. Arjun has been selected in the Indian Under-19 squad to tour Sri Lanka in July. Arjun will take part in matches of Sri Lanka tour within just two or four days.
He is not the part of the five-match ODI series. He has to return India as he will participate in the Under-19 camp under the guidance of W.V. Raman and Sanath Kumar in the National Cricket Academy Bangaluru before touring Sri Lanka.
Benefits of This Practice for Arjun Tendulkar:
It is Arjun’s first practice with Team India on the overseas pitch. Although he has practiced with many Indian team players on the Indian grounds, earlier. Last year, he bowled Virat Kohli during the practice.
Arjun will be benefited greatly by practicing with international cricketers for the first time on the foreign pitches. This will provide him with a lot of new things to learn and a great experience. Arjun learned many things from Indian team’s head coach Ravi Shastri as well as bowling coach Bharat Arun in practice.
