Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021: Indian Premier League (IPL) is known for its competitive nature and exposure with the overseas cricketers. The last edition was no less, where every player was challenged by the other player as well as by the harsh pandemic. The tournament was conducted with certain set rules and regulations, however, the IPL 2020 came out to be one of the most successful IPL in the entire history.
With the given set of challenges, IPL gives players to rise and shine. Ishan Kishan and Nicholas Pooran were one of the key highlights of the same. The coming edition will also bring some challenges for the players.
With over 1000 players signing for the IPL auctions, there are only 61 slots to be filled by the franchises. Amongst those all cricketers, Arjun Tendulkar could be one to draw the attention of the franchises.
As per the reports, the left-arm pacer has registered for the Indian Premier League 2021 auctions and it will be interesting to see who picks him.
In this article, we will discuss three franchise that could pick Arjun Tendulkar in IPL 2021 auctions.
3 Teams that can pick Arjun Tendulkar in IPL2021 auctions:
The inaugural champions of the cash-rich title had a poor outing last time. Having won two games on the trot in the beginning and losing many to slip the momentum was their story. The franchise saw a massive collapse last time as they finished at the bottom of the points table.
However, this time the franchise has gambled by releasing their skipper Steve Smith and have appointed wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson as the new young captain of the side.
Even though the side is loaded with talented overseas players, the lack of Indian pacer cost them. They could find no one to compliment Jofra Archer. Hence, the place for Arjun Tendulkar automatically becomes high.
The left-arm seamer could be a good combination along with Jofra Archer and other spinners of the side.
The five-times champions have never underestimated the need of Indian core. Since the last 10 years, the franchise had put in all the efforts to get some talented Indian players so that they can form the core of the side.
The presence of Indian core is the need of the hour as not many overseas players play spinners so well and the Indian surface are more on spinner side. Hence the need for Indian core becomes crucial.
Following his father’s footsteps, Arjun Tendulkar might end up in Mumbai’s camp. Previously, during his days, Sachin Tendulkar also sported the jersey of the five-times champion and it seems that Arjun will be following the same.
We might witness the due of Jasprit Bumrah and Arjun Tendulkar bowling together in the coming years.
Royal Challenger Bangalore:
The last outing for the Virat Kohli and Co was pretty decent. The franchise reached the playoffs and was eventually knocked out by Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was good to see few contributors for RCB apart from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
However, they still need to address the issue of bowlers. RCB has no one in their arsenal to bowl alongside Mohammad Siraj with good performance.
Arjun Tendulkar could be the one who can bring the balance in the team and bowl with Siraj. Although Arjun is not a perfect pacer right now but over the years he can become deadly with his bowling and left-handed bowlers are always a treat for any side.
