Though the 12-year-old was not a part of the playing XI, he was seen cheering the team from the pavilion, that caught all the attention.
He was also named in the 32-member list of probables, since he had scored 295 off 5 matches in Mumbai's inter-school competition.
Arjun first played Cadence Trophy, a national level tournament in Pune, before being picked for U-14 Mumbai team.
Though many were excited about Arjun's selection, parents of other children speculated his selection as other good performances were ignored while naming Sachin Tendulkar's son in the U-14 Mumbai squad, according to a Times of India report.
While the controversy over Arjun's selection had created a flutter, the issue is slowly fading, as people have started to focus on the legendary cricketer's son, who is hoping to make his debut for Mumbai in U-14 zonal tournament. Since he was not included in the team for the first tie against Gujarat, it remains to be seen if the 12-year-old gets an opportunity to make his debut this season.
