Arjun Tendulkar trains under watchful eyes of Yograj Singh before making his debut for Goa
The 22-year-old recently switched sides from Mumbai to Goa with the hope of getting more opportunities.
Just before making his debut for Goa in the JP Atrey Memorial Cricket Tournament, Arjun Tendulkar, the son of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar was spotted with Yograj Singh during his training session at the DAV Academy. The 64-year-old is the father of two-time world champion Yuvraj Singh and played a massive role in shaping Yuvraj’s career as a cricketer. Arjun, who’s struggling to get going at the moment thus training under Yograj Singh is a massive development in the cricketing circuit.
The tournament will feature 16 teams and is considered to be one of the most iconic tournaments in domestic cricket. The BCCI-recognised tournament saw more than 100 cricketers play for India in the future. Thus, it shapes and moulds the players in a correct way and that is exactly what Arjun will expect from the tourney.
“Arjun Tendulkar will be playing in the tournament from the Goa Cricket Association side,” Sushil Kapoor, Organiser of the tournament, said at a press conference earlier. The all-rounder is also a part of the Mumbai Indians dressing room but is yet to make his debut in the IPL. He has very inconsistent and thus, the right time keeps on getting delayed. The 22-year-old played 2 T20 matches for Mumbai and picked up two wickets at an economy rate of 9.57.

The career of Yograj Singh
Born in Chandigarh, the former India international played six ODIs and one Test match for his country. In the six ODIs, Yograj picked up 4 wickets and only one wicket in the solo Test that he played against New Zealand. Post his retirement, he took Yuvraj Singh under his wings and helped him to become a better cricketer.
The 40-year-old Yuvraj Singh in a lot of his press conferences revealed how hard his father used to work in order to shape his career. Known as a tough hard taskmaster, Yograj’s training procedure was very different from any other coach and Yuvraj during the time of his retirement revealed how it helped him to play for India.
The former cricketer was also seen in the movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, where he played the role of Farhan Akhtar’s trainer in the national squad.
