India U-19 squad for 2 four-day games: Anuj Rawat (C), Atharva Taide, Devdutt Padikkal, Aryan Juyal (WK), Yash Rathod, Ayush Badoni, Sameer Choudhary, Siddharth Desai, Harsh Tyagi, YD Mangwani, Arjun Tendulkar, Nehal Wadhera, Akash Pande, Mohit Jangra, Pawan Shah. He now has 29 wickets from five first-class matches and three scalps from as many one-day matches.

Arjun, 18, was picked as part of a 15-member squad by the country┬┤s junior selection committee, according to a press release by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Last year, Tendulkar was selected to the Mumbai Under-19 squad after impressing at lower levels, and he has represented the Marylebone Cricket Club Young Cricketers. Most of the bowlers above him are spinners with only Ajay Dev Goud (33 wickets) being a genuine all-rounder. "He is a slow medium bowler while Arjun is a quick bowler", the source told The Times of India.

"A lot of people don't know U-19 zonals are happening at Una and Arjun has done well there". Another user Pradeep Kumar S tweeted, " let's give him a chance before concluding that he is in the team because of Sachin Tendulkar".

Facebook says the issue has now been fixed and that the user's privacy settings have been returned to their original state. For a bug to break that system for millions of users is yet another major problem Facebook is going to have to deal with.

While batting legend Tendulkar expressed his delight at Arjun's selection, calling it an "important milestone in his cricketing life", a few cricket fans were up in arms, claiming nepotism. The fast bowler will bowl under the captaincy of Anuj Rawat. "Anjali and I will always support Arjun in his choices and pray for his success".

Arjun has had the privilege of training against some of the big names in world cricket as he had been the net bowler for Team India during their overseas tours of England and Australia.

Asked if the youngster will be under pressure, the senior official said: "He is eyeing to become a professional cricketer". The team will be playing two four-day matches and five one-day matches in the island nation which is slated to be held from 11th July to 11th August 2018.
