IPL 2021: 3 teams can choose Arjun Tendulkar at the IPL 2021 auction.
Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021: The Indian Premier League (IPL) is known for its competitive nature and exposure to foreign cricketers. The last edition was no less, where each player was challenged by the other player as well as by the severe pandemic. The tournament was held under certain rules and regulations, however, the 2020 IPL turned out to be one of the most successful IPLs in history.
With the given set of challenges, IPL gives players the chance to rise up and shine. Ishan Kishan and Nicholas Pooran have been one of the highlights of the same. The next edition will also bring challenges for players.
With over 1000 players signing up for the IPL auctions, there are only 61 franchise slots to fill. Among all these cricketers, Arjun Tendulkar could be the one who will grab the attention of franchises.
According to reports, the left arm stimulator has entered the 2021 Indian Premier League auction and it will be interesting to see who chooses it.
In this article, we will discuss three franchises that could choose Arjun Tendulkar in the 2021 IPL auctions.
3 teams that can choose Arjun Tendulkar in the IPL2021 auctions:
Royals of Rajasthan:
The inaugural cash-rich title champions had a bad outing last time around. Their story has been to win two games at the trot at the start and lose a lot to lose momentum. The franchise saw a massive collapse the last time around as it finished at the bottom of the points table.
However, this time around, the franchise played by releasing its skipper Steve Smith and named goaltender-beater Sanju Samson as the team’s new young captain.
Even though the squad is packed with talented foreign players, the lack of Indian boost has taken its toll. They couldn’t find anyone to compliment Jofra Archer. Therefore, Arjun Tendulkar’s place automatically becomes elevated.
The left arm seamstress could be a good combination with Jofra Archer and other spinners on the side.
The five-time champions have never underestimated the need for an Indian core. For the past 10 years, the franchise has made every effort to find talented Indian players so that they can form the core of the team.
The presence of the Indian core is the need of the hour because few foreign players play spinners as well and the Indian surface is more on the side of the spinners. Therefore, the need for an Indian core becomes crucial.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Arjun Tendulkar could end up in the Mumbai camp. Previously, during his days, Sachin Tendulkar also sported the five-time champion’s jersey and it looks like Arjun will follow the same.
We could witness the fact that Jasprit Bumrah and Arjun Tendulkar will perform together in the years to come.
Royal Challenger Bangalore:
The last outing for the Virat Kohli and Co was pretty decent. The franchise reached the playoffs and was eventually eliminated by Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was good to see few contributors for RCB apart from Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
However, they still have to tackle the bowlers problem. RCB has no one in his arsenal to play alongside Mohammad Siraj with good performances.
Arjun Tendulkar could be the one who can bring balance to the squad and play with Siraj. Although Arjun isn’t a perfect stimulus right now, but over the years he can turn deadly with his bowling and left-handed bowlers are always a treat for any side.
