Tendulkars son Arjun breaks into India U-19 squad

The one-day squad will be led by 16-year-old Uttar Pradesh wicketkeeper-batsman Aryan Juyal, who had played two matches in the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy earlier this year and was part of the Under-19 World Cup winning team in January. "So it's better he gets some match practice", the source said. He has more than 100 global centuries to his name apart from holding the record for most runs in Tests and ODI history. The 18-year-old is a left-arm medium pacer and a left-hand batsman.

He made his Harris Shield debut in 2011 and was out for a duck. Mangwani plays for Maharashtra Cricket Association. The left-hander slammed 124 runs, with 14 fours and a six to help Khar Gymkhana side beat the Goregaon Centre by an innings and 21 runs in the semis. He had often been seen bowling to the Indian team and the Mumbai Indians players in the nets. "He is a hard working cricketer and is always willing to learn".

The 18-year-old has also regularly featured in net sessions involving worldwide teams in recent times including the one in England where he yorked Jonny Bairstow to cause an injury scare ahead of the Test match against South Africa at Lord's last year.

There were also talks of Arjun playing for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2018, but that did not happen.

He had threatened to stop working with her, saying that Halep's negative body language and attitude were standing in her way. She led unseeded Jelena Ostapenko one set to love, and 3-0 in the second set, three games away from her breakthrough.

After a sparkling performance in the match, Arjun said, "I used to play taekwondo, cricket football, swimming and somehow cricket kicked in and everything else took a back seat".

In January this year, Arjun represented a Cricket Club of India XI against a Hong Kong-based side at the Bradman Oval in Adelaide, where he made a 27-ball 48 as an opener apart from picking four wickets.

Arjun though finished 43rd on the list of wicket-takers in the Cooch Behar Trophy, the national U-19 tournament. In his first outing, he picked up four wickets to bowl Namibia out for 49. He said he did not choose bowling consciously. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Thursday, chose to include the 18-year-old for the tour that commences next month. He has claimed 18 wickets from five domestic matches at the U-19 level including a five-wicket haul.
