Mumbai Indians’ new-recruit Arjun Tendulkar sounds confident and looks in good shape ahead of his maiden IPL season. After a practice session with the MI team under the scorching Chennai heat, Tendulkar said that it is a good way to acclimatize. He also said that the ball is coming out well from his hand.

Eyes would be on every move of the next Tendulkar in cricket. The young left-arm pacer would know the burden of expectations he has on his shoulders.
