The left-hander has proved to be useful middle-order batsman and an effective medium pacer. Arjun's knock of 124 in the local tournament had a big role to play in the teenager making the cut.
Tendulkar Sr tried to play down his son's big break by saying Arjun needs to left alone. "Like any other parent I feel extremely happy & proud that he is part of Mumbai U-14 team. His hard work has paid off. I hope that people leave him alone to enjoy this beautiful game as a normal member of the team," Tendulkar told The Indian Express.
Squad: Akash Savla, Darshan Padare, Vaishnav Narvekar, Tanush Kotian, Arjun Tendulkar, Azim Shaikh, Omkar Rahate, Abhishek Shetty, Agni Chopra, Druv Vedak, Hashir Dafedar, Manas Raikar, Jay Dave, Jahangir Ansari, Yash Joshi.
I am shocked to see the venomous comments written by people here. Indians basically don't like successful people. Sachin is an artist. He is a legend. Some .... commentators who hides their identity behind a fake username can only bark. But they will live and die and nobody will even know whether they existed or not. It is shocking to see their venom of jealousy flowing even toward the little boy. It looks like Sachin asked these fools to watch his game or Sachin robbed their house ? Russel peters was right " Terrorists hate America and Indians hate each other". Shame on the people who despise Sachin Tendulkar.
why so much of publicity to sachin and his son...? we should not fill all the newspaper and elec.media with cricket and cinema...how and who think this quality as a news?
so every one who matters can enjoy at the cost of the nation - whether it be cricket or politics...
We all pray that Sachin should continue his Cricket for some more time.I am eager to see him playing for India alongside his son.Thats the one record to his allready overflowing cap of record.We all are waiting to see Senior alongside Junior TENDULKAR in INDIAN team.
This is how things normally happen in India and people find nothing unusual in that. There are hundreds of promising and talented young cricketers in Mumbai waiting for years to be considered for inclusion in u-14 team. I can name at least ten boys who are ten times better than Sachin's son. Without a powerful father or a patron to push them to the forefront, they will end up playing among themselves on school playgrounds un-noticed.
