Arjun Tendulkar: Chris Morris, Kyle Jamieson, Glenn Maxwell, etc. took a huge amount in this auction in the 14th season of the Indian Premier League 2021.
But one name that kept fans most engaged on social media was Arjun Tendulkar’s name.
Let us tell you that Arjun Tendulkar has been added by the Mumbai team to the best prize of Rs 20 lakhs. Arjun is the son of former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
Some believe that Arjun has joined the franchise on the basis of surname. Others believed that left-arm fast bowler and all-rounder Arjun Tendulkar could benefit Mumbai Indians with his skills.

The contract also allowed Arjun Tendulkar to play under his father’s mentorship. Who is working as an expert in the dressing room of Mumbai Indians?
The same Aakash Chopra, who watched this IPL auction very keenly and has expressed his opinion on various deals throughout the day.
He has suggested that the team of Mumbai Indians has not bought Arjun only by his surname. He can learn a lot from home too.
He has his father who can teach him a lot. But now he will be an important part of a very big franchise. In which they will also get to learn a lot.
That is why I am sure that he will benefit greatly from that experience. Akash Chopra said he is also taking wickets for Mumbai.
It is not that he has been chosen just because his surname is Tendulkar. He is doing a lot, of course, Mumbai wanted him and they got him too.
“I would like to thank the coaches, owners and the support staff for showing faith in me.” 🙌💙

Arjun was also associated with Mumbai in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021. Where he got to play only two matches.
However, the left-arm medium-pacer and all-rounder Arjun has not done much so far. The same Arjun Tendulkar shared a video saying that he has always been a fan of Mumbai Indians.
And he is more than happy to join the team of Mumbai Paltan. Arjun Tendulkar said, I want to thank the coaches, owners, and support staff for showing confidence in me.
