Arjun Tendulkar, the son of the legendary Indian cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar, is a part of the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians (MI) franchise in the Indian Premier League but has not yet played a single match in the IPL. He was picked by the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians (MI) franchise in the 2021 IPL auctions for a sum of INR 20 Lakhs. However, he didn’t get the opportunity to showcase his talent in front of the world.
He is very active on social media, took some time out of his busy scheduled and answered a few questions from his fans on Instagram. During the ‘Ask Me Anything’ session, Arjun was asked about his favorite Mumbai Indians’ (MI) player, and his answer was very unexpected.
Responding to the fans’ query, Arjun Tendulkar, named India’s and Mumbai Indians’ sensational bowler Jasprit Bumrah as his favorite player from the five-time winning team.

Meanwhile, talking about Jasprit Bumrah, he was retained by Mumbai Indians’ side ahead of the 2022 IPL mega auctions. He has been retained for a salary of INR 12 Crores. The sensational pacer has become one of the key players for the Mumbai-based franchise ever since he debuted. In his IPL career of 8 years, Jasprit has represented the Rohit Sharma-led team in 106 games and has picked 130 wickets at an excellent strike rate of just 18.63.
Currently, Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the upcoming limited-overs series between India and West Indies, which will kickstart on 6th February 2022. The upcoming series between both countries will consist of 3 ODIs and 3 T20I matches.
