Team India coach Ravi Shastri offered some "words of wisdom" to the 18-year-old left-arm fast bowler.

Arjun, son of the legendary cricketer, was selected in India's Under-19 squad for the tour of Sri La in July. And he will be returning to India as he has to undergo an U-19 camp at the National Cricket Academy under new coaching staff that includes W.V.Raman and Sanath Kumar ahead of the tour to the Island nation.

Arjun has only been picked for the two four-day matches in Sri Lanka, and has not made the cut for the five-match one-day squad.

The cricketer was part of a group of U-19 cricketers who underwent a month-long camp in Dharamsala in April this year.

Arjun has often trained with the Indian team and last year, bowled to the England Test team. Last year, he bowled to the likes of Kohli and his men in the nets at the Wankhede Stadium.

"Words of wisdom from @RaviShastriOfc for young Arjun Tendulkar," the BCCI tweeted alongside a photogragh of Shastri and Arjun.

The Indian team landed in London ahead of the crucial tour of England. The team will travel to Dublin for a couple of T20Is against Ireland before returning to England for a series comprising three T20Is, three ODIs and five Tests.
