Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar will be seen making his Kanga League debut this season. He will be playing for Young Parsee Cricket Club in ‘G’ Division of Kanga League, which is now known as Summer Vacation Shield.
 
“He will be playing his first Kanga League where he will be competing with several Under-17 and Under-19 boys,” an insider was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.
 
Arjun has played age-group level cricket so far and playing in the Kanga League, where he will be playing against Under-17 and Under-19 boys, will help him prepare for big-match experiences.
 
Yet, 13-year-old Arjun won’t be the youngest cricketer in the league. Eight-year-old Musheer Khan, who will be playing for Sportsfield Cricket Club, is also set to make his debut in the ‘G’ division. Musheer, who is a left-arm spinner, is probably the youngest player to play Kanga league in the last 20 years.
 
Musheer’s father Naushad said, “He has been taking three-fout wickets in practice games and got the wickets of several senior guys. The way Musheer is bowling, it is high time we gave him a break, I will be playing too and being a left-arm orthodox bowler myself, I will be able to guide him.”
