Adidas, which has already signed up Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina added some more names to its roster.
Tendulkar welcomed the newest members of team Adidas — Unmukt Chand, Parveez Rasool, Vijay Zol, Manan Vohra, Manpreet Juneja, Rush Kalaria, Chirag Khurana, Akshdeep Nath, Vikas Mishra, Sarfaraz Khan and Baba Aparajith.
“This is a great initiative from Adidas to support the future of this sport, which encourages aspiring athletes to follow their passion and be part of an extraordinary league. Mentoring these talented young cricketers will let me be close to what I love and give back to the sport,” Tendulkar, who retired from international cricket last year, said at the event.
The 21-year-old Unmukt is former captain of the 2012 Under-19 World Cup champion team and played for the Delhi Daredevils in Indian Premier League (IPL) this year.
Rasool, 25, is the first Jammu and Kashmir cricketer to represent the Indian senior team. He captained his state team to the Ranji trophy knock-out phase this year.
