Back in January, Arjun made his T20 debut for Mumbai in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy.
The thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League was one of its kind. For the very first time, the players experienced the thrill of virtual fan boxes and they had to work and play under certain strict rules. The commencement of the tournament was done in uncertainty and nobody had expected that the BCCI will manage to conduct the tournament. However, it was one of the most highly competitive editions of the IPL.
Last year’s IPL witnessed the rise of Ishan Kishan, Nicholas Pooran, and many more to name. They managed to grab the opportunity with both hands and became the core of their respective team’s batting lineup. While the Mumbai Indians dominated every team last season, the Chennai Super Kings failed to make it to the top four for the very first time.
This year, over 1,000 players have registered for the upcoming auction. Amongst those, Arjun Tendulkar might draw some attention. Well, it is not only about the surname, but also about the potential he carries as a pacer. It will be interesting to see which team will look forward to including him in their squad.
Here are the 3 teams that can target Arjun Tendulkar in the upcoming IPL auction:
1. Rajasthan Royals
The men in pink had a tremendous start last year, as they won two consecutive games upfront. However, they failed to maintain the momentum as they lost multiple games throughout the tournament. It meant that they finished at the eighth position. Another year, another poor campaign for the Royals!
This year, they have decided to release a veteran player in the form of Steve Smith. As a result, Sanju Samson has been named as the captain of the team. This means that they are looking forward to their team’s future and the addition of Arjun Tendulkar might help them. The Royals have decided to let go a few overseas fast bowlers and this looks like the perfect platform for Arjun Tendulkar to make his debut.
The Indian Premier League is well known for the platform it provides to the youngsters. Unfortunately, last year, the Royals had suffered because of the poor performances by the Indian fast bowlers. They were unable to compliment Jofra Archer and hence, it marked a bowling unit failure. Therefore, Arjun Tendulkar might be picked by the Rajasthan Royals.
