Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun bowled to Virat Kohli and his Indian team-mates in the nets at Wankhede Stadium.

Watched by India head coach Ravi Shastri and bowling coach Bharat Arun, the 18-year-old started bowling as soon as the team’s training session ahead of the three match ODI series against New Zealand began at around 4.15pm on Friday. He also bowled in the nets on Saturday.

Arjun bowled first to Shikhar Dhawan and then to Kohli. He also bowled to Ajinkya Rahane and middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav among others. He was also seen interacting with Bharat Arun.

It’s not new for Arjun to bowl at the nets as he had done the same to the women’s team at the iconic Lords before its ICC Women’s World Cup final against England.

Arjun, who was named in a Mumbai U-19 squad for an invitational tournament, is a budding left-hand seamer.
