During the 2020–21 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy against Haryana and Puducherry, respectively, Tendulkar Junior played two games for Mumbai. Although he was a member of Mumbai Indians for the most recent IPL season, the 22-year-old fast bowler didn’t participate in a single match.

“In addition to adding players to the middle order with a variety of talents, we have been on the lookout for left-handed bowling ability. Arjun Tendulkar was asked to join the Goa team in this situation. He will participate in the preseason exhibition games (white ball) that we will be playing. Afterward, the judges would make a decision depending on his performance “Suraj Lotlikar, head of the Goa CA, stated.

Arjun’s decision to work for a different state is related to him obtaining game time to demonstrate his skills. He recently took part in T20 matches in England as a member of the Mumbai Indians’ development team. However, the rookie has yet to play a game for the five-time IPL winners. Arjun’s participation with the franchise for the next season is still uncertain.

“Arjun has to make the most of his playing time at this point in his career. We think that the change will increase Arjun’s chances of appearing in more intense matches. His cricketing career is starting a new chapter “In a statement, SRT Sports Management stated.

Salil Ankola, the head selector for Mumbai, spoke about the decision on Cricbuzz and said that the ‘promising’ player needs game experience to further his career.

“Last year, we selected him for the Ranji Trophy, but he was unable to make the starting XI. He is a young man with extraordinary skill and all he needs to demonstrate it is some playing time. I’m hoping that this transition will do that “Ankola remarked.
