Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun grabbed a few eyeballs as he bowled to Virat Kohli and co at the Wankhede Stadium ahead of their first ODI against New Zealand in Mumbai on Sunday.
Watched by India head coach Ravi Shastri and bowling coach Bharat Arun, 18-year-old Arjun bowled at the nets as soon as the team's training session, ahead of the three-match rubber, began at around 4:15pm.
Arjun – a budding left-handed seamer – bowled first to left-handed Shikhar Dhawan and then to Kohli. He also bowled to Ajinkya Rahane and middle order batsman Kedar Jadhav among others.
Named in the Mumbai Under-19 squad for an invitational tournament, he was also seen interacting with Bharat Arun.
Earlier this year, Arjun was seen bowling at the nets to the women's team at Lords before their ICC World Cup final against England.
