Arjun Tendulkar: At the beginning of this season, when Mumbai’s team started losing matches one after the other, the team management started trying different players. Many players were given a chance but Mumbai could not get back on the winning track. In such a situation, the question has been arising before every match that in the next match, will the Mumbai team give a chance to Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun to debut? The same question arose again before the match of Mumbai Indians to be held today, which has been answered by the head coach of the team, Mahela Jayawardene.
During a conversation with India Today, Jayawardene said, “Every player in our squad is an option. We will see what can happen. Our priority is to have the right team combination so that we can ensure that how we win matches. We registered our first win of the season and now we are trying to win consecutive matches so that we can regain the faith we have lost. The priority is to give the best players the first chance. If Arjun is one of them, we will give him a chance too. It all depends on the combination.
