Arjun Tendulkar is all set to represent Mumbai in the under-19 category.

Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s son is likely to make his debut for Mumbai in the upcoming Vinoo Mankad Trophy when Mumbai face Baroda on October 9 and Saurashtra on October 10, respectively.

Left-handed Arjun is the team as its leading all-rounder.

Mumbai Cricket Association’s (MCA) under-19 selection committee, led by Rajesh Pawar, announced the team for the first two games and Mid-Day quoted Pawar saying that Arjun will be the team's main all-rounder, “He will be our main all-rounder. I saw a lot of improvement in his game. When we played in Baroda recently, he bowled well and during our two practice matches here in Mumbai, he bowled and batted well. I consider him as a bowling all-rounder of the team.”

Arjun has represented Mumbai in the Under-16 category in 2015-16 and has played in the 'B' division last year, but this however, will be the biggest breakthrough of his career.

Mumbai U-19 squad: Agni Chopra (c), Dhruv Brid (wk), Divyansh Saxena, Karan Shah, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Satyalaksha Jain, Tanush Kotian, Atharva Ankolekar, Saksham Jha, Anjadeep Lad, Sylvester Dsouza, Arjun Tendulkar, Abhimany Vashisht, Sagar Chhabaria, Farhan Kazi.
