Given that MI had lost their first five matches of the IPL 2022, fans feel that Arjun Tendulkar could be given a debut cap soon as he will bring his all-round skills which MI need. The 22-year-old recently got his maiden call Mumbai Ranji Trophy call-up but didn’t get to make his Ranji debut.

A day before their league stage fixture against LSG, Mumbai Indians (MI) teased an IPL debut for Arjun Tendulkar with an Instagram post, captioned: “#MIvLSG on our minds!”

Arjun’s elder sister and now a heavily followed celebrity, Sara Tendulkar, commented a series of blue hearts on it that has got hundreds of likes.

Arjun Tendulkar could replace either the Basil Thampi or Jaydev Unadkat in the eleven as both pacers have lacked wicket-taking threat and have been expensive.

Arjun played two Syed Mushtaq Ali games last year for Mumbai, picking up 2 wickets and going at an expensive economy of 9.57. He has also featured for the Marylebone Cricket Club Young Cricketers side in the Second Eleven Twenty20 tournament in Coggeshall, Essex.

Meanwhile, the update from the Brabourne Stadium is that MI have decided to play West Indian all-rounder Fabian Allen in place of Basil Thampi vs Lucknow; skipper Rohit Sharma explained that they wanted to have an extra spin-bowling option since this is a day match. So, Arjun Tendulkar will have to wait further for his IPL debut.
