He had also bowled in the India nets during the home series against New Zealand a year ago. He now has 29 wickets from five first-class matches and three scalps from as many one-day matches. Yesterday the three-member junior selection committee, comprising Ashish Kapoor, Gyanendra Pandey and Rakesh Parikh, selected Arjun Tendulkar for the India U-19 team for the two four-day games against Sri Lanka.

However, Danielle Wyatt, the England Women cricketer, was also happy for the youngster.

The 18-year-old has also regularly featured in net sessions involving worldwide teams in recent times including the one in England where he yorked Jonny Bairstow to cause an injury scare ahead of the Test match against South Africa at Lord's last year.

Arjun has been named only in the four-day squad, which will be led by Delhi's Anuj Rawat.

The selection of Arjun Tendulkar, son of Sachin Tendulkar, in the India U19 squad is a big step for the left-arm pacer before realising the ultimate dream of playing at the global team.

Arjun, a left-arm seamer, was a part of the Mumbai Under-19 squad past year in the Cooch Behar Trophy where he scalped 18 wickets. Arjun is already 18 years old which suggests that there will be no special treatment for him as far as his selection in the senior team is concerned and will go through the process.

When a source close to the selection committee was asked how Arjun despite being 43rd in the wicket takers list made the cut, he explained: "If you look at the List, Arjun is the only genuine quick bowler who has more than 15 wickets". Let them play Ranji Trophy.

No wonder he will be compared with his father who used to just instil fears in the mind of the bowlers with his presence in the middle. "So a lot of boys ahead of Arjun are disqualified", a senior BCCI official said. He is another member of this Indian squad and he will have to perform.

The one-day squad will be led by 16-year-old Uttar Pradesh wicketkeeper-batsman Aryan Juyal, who had played two matches in the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy earlier this year and was part of the Under-19 World Cup winning team in January. "The selectors have given him a chance looking at his potential".

Ever since Sachin has hung up his boots from the game, the spotlight has fallen on his son Arjun who has impressed with some eye-catching performances at the domestic level.
