Sachin Tendulkar’s Son Arjun To Leave Mumbai & Play For Goa; Know Why
Mumbai: Arjun Tendulkar will part ways with Mumbai and play for Goa in the upcoming domestic season.
The son of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, left-arm medium-pacer Arjun has already applied for a No Objection Certificate (NoC) from his home association Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), a Goa Cricket Association official told PTI.
Tendulkar junior had not been getting too many chances for Mumbai, having played just two games in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He was also a part of Mumbai Indians in the 2022 IPL, but didn’t play a single game.
The 22-year-old cricketer, who is a useful lower-order bat as well, wants more matches to showcase his talent.
“Getting maximum game time on the ground is important for Arjun at this juncture of his career. We believe that the shift will improve the probability of Arjun featuring in more competitive matches. He is embarking on a new phase of his cricketing career,” SRT Sports Management said in a statement.
Mumbai chief selector Salil Ankola said the ‘talented’ Arjun needs match time to lift his career.
“We picked him for the Ranji Trophy last year, but he could not make the XI. He is an extremely talented boy and all he needs is some match time so that he can prove his abilities. I hope this switch will serve that purpose,” Cricbuzz quoted Ankola as saying.
