Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar moves from Mumbai to Goa in search of playing opportunities in domestic cricket

Arjun Tendulkar has, so far, only played a few T20 games for Mumbai and is yet to make his debut in Ranji trophy and List A cricket

Arjun Tendulkar, the son of arguably the greatest batsman of all time Sachin Tendulkar, has decided to make a switch from Mumbai to Goa in India’s domestic circuit in search of some playing opportunities.

Arjun, who is a left-arm fast bowler and can bat a bit lower down the order, has been in and around the Mumbai squad in the last few years, but he hasn’t yet got the opportunity to play either in the Ranji trophy or India’s domestic List A competition, the Vijay Hazare trophy.

The Mumbai team management had given Arjun Tendulkar the opportunity to play a couple of T20 games a few years ago, but that was the only bit of run that Arjun got with Mumbai. He has been on the bench most of the time when he has been a part of the Mumbai squad.

Sachin Tendulkar recently had a conversation with Cricbuzz where he said that it’s vital for Arjun at this stage of his career to play as many games as possible in India’s domestic circuit and since he is not getting those playing opportunities for Mumbai right now, he has decided to make a move to Goa.

Arjun Tendulkar was recently in England with the Mumbai Indians development squad

Arjun Tendulkar was recently in England with a Mumbai Indians development squad which played a lot of club cricket in English conditions. Mumbai Indians have bought Arjun in the last couple of IPL auctions, but Arjun hasn’t yet made his debut in the IPL either.

In the previous season of the IPL when Mumbai Indians got eliminated from the tournament early, they gave opportunities to a lot of young players, but Arjun still didn’t get the opportunity and spent the entire season on the sidelines. However, after moving to Goa, the southpaw might get to feature regularly in India’s domestic cricket now.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
