IPL defending champion Mumbai Indians (MI) is preparing fiercely for their 5th title this time. The Mumbai team has also taken net bowlers to the UAE, who will support their team’s batsmen in batting practice there. One name in the net dialect is also that of Arjun Tendulkar, son of legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar.
On Monday, Mumbai Indians young leg-spinner Rahul Chahar posted a photo of the pool session with Arjun and his fellow players on their Twitter, while some fans did not like it. He was enraged by seeing Arjun’s picture in the Mumbai camp and termed Arjun’s presence as ‘nepotism’ (nepotism).
Arjun is chilling in the pool here along with Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult and some other Mumbai players and supporting staff. Posting this photo, Deepak Chahar wrote in the caption, ‘You are just a swim away to get in a good mood’.
Some fans instead of praising this picture, took a different angle with Arjun here. One wrote, “Brother-nepotism is at its peak.”
One wrote, ‘This is not nepotism. Arjun Tendulkar is a better bowler than Virat Kohli.
By the way, let Arjun play in domestic cricket for Mumbai only. He has also represented Mumbai in under-19 cricket. Apart from this, as a player of Team India’s junior team, he has played cricket against many countries. All IPL franchises can choose any emerging player as Net Boller. If one of these names is also of Arjuna, then it is not wrong. Apart from this, Arjun has also bowled India’s women’s and men’s team from time to time.
