Arjun is a left-arm seamer. , He had bowled at India’s senior team in the nets during the home series against New Zealand last year. Arjun hit headlines this year by hitting a 27-ball 48 before taking four wickets with the ball in a T20 match for Cricket Club of India against Hong Kong Cricket Club.
Social Media had mixed response. While some welcomed the decision, others thought that its undue favour to Sachin Tendulkar.

#ArjunTendulkar is an average bowler. He runs, and delivers the ball with a weird action. Thanks to his father's recommendations, he is now part of the U-19 squad- and hundreds of more talented bowlers get ignored.— Ganeshan Iyer (@ganeshan_iyer) June 7, 2018
Remember, there was someone called Rohan Gavaskar.
Seriously why so much negativity around his selection ? If he doesn't deserve to be there , he will get dropped just like other players ( son of) famous cricketers.#ArjunTendulkar pic.twitter.com/9fP2SKGPtV— Prashant Pareek (@prashan23S) June 7, 2018
