April 16,2022(New Delhi): The legendary Player Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar, could finally make his IPL debut for Mumbai Indians. The most successful IPL team Mumbai Indians have not won a single match after five attempts. One feels it is time to try a new strategy and have wholesale changes to change fortunes. As MI get ready to lock horns with Lucknow Super Giants on Saturday at the Brabourne stadium, there are a few changes expected and they could be shocking ones.

If the Mumbai left-arm pacer make the final XI, Arjun will replace either Basil Thampir or Jaydev Unadkat. MI’s pace attack has been their weak link and biggest reason for their shocking start in the tournament. Arjun has played 2 T20s for Mumbai state team. He was part of Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy team but is uncapped in first-class cricket.
In recent post, Mumbai Indians shared a picture of Arjun Tendulkar in a training session, something which left fans speculating whether the youngster could be making his debut and shine his aroma just as his father did. The all-rounder has been with the franchise for a while now and the five-time champions re-purchased him in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction in February.

As MI have already lost their first five matches and it is now near impossible for them to get back into the good position for play-offs as they would need to win at least eight of the remaining nine games. “As you have seen, it is a fresh auction and we are building this team for the next three-four years, coming a few years down the line, you will see some great players coming out from this team,” Surya said at the virtual pre-match press conference which was an indicator that MI’s current season could well be over even before it reaches mid-phase of the league.
