With Mumbai Indians might be out of the qualifying race for the playoffs, fans were expecting that Rohit Sharma and team management would give an opportunity to Tendulkar jr. in this game however to everyone’s dismay, he was once again left out of the MI’s playing xi against DC.
Arjun was picked again for INR 30 lakh ahead of the ongoing season, but he will have to wait for yet another season for an appearance in the playing XI as he continues to warm the bench. At the time of toss, Rohit named two changes in his side as youngster Dewald Brevis returned to the MI XI replacing Tristan Stubbs, while Hrithik Shokeen replaced Sanjay Yadav. Rohit said:
“There will be a few eyes on us, so we got to come up with the best. We have tried a few things in the last few games keeping an eye on the future. We want to finish on a high,”
Meanwhile, fans on social media were once again left disappointed with MI’s team management for not giving Arjun Tendulkar an opportunity in the ongoing season. Angry fans are trolling MI’s team management left, right and center.

Feeling bad for #ArjunTendulkar he has not got a single in these 2 seasons. I don't know why they pick him to bowl in nets only? Atleast other team take him so he might get chance there which is better for him from individual perspective.#IPL2022 #MIvsDC @mipaltan

#ArjunTendulkar is victim of nepotism. While so many talentless kid's getting chance based on nepotism, Arjun Tendulkar keeps suffering and waiting for his term. Have seen so many 18-19 year old playing in IPL and Arjun is still waiting for his term at the age of 22. #DCvsMI

Not done @mipaltan ,you are wasting #ArjunTendulkar ,you would have given atleast couple of chances to him in entire season .
Looks like you people bought him just to show ego . He deserve a chance to showcase his abilities .
Forget he is starkid but he has his own career.
