Notably, the 22-year-old left-arm pacer was signed by Mumbai Indians for a sum of INR 30 lakhs, but he failed to make even a single appearance. Such was the situation that Rohit Sharma and his think tank did not give Sachin Tendulkar’s son an opportunity even after his team was officially eliminated from the IPL 2022 playoffs race.

Sachin himself was asked about his feelings regarding his son’s continuous omission from the MI team, to which he said “This is a different question. What I am thinking or what I feel is not important. The season is already over.”

“If we speak about selection, I have never involved myself in selection. I leave all these things to the (team) management because that is how I have always functioned,” he further added.

Meanwhile, after not making any appearances in IPL, Arjun was dealt with another big blow as he was axed from the Mumbai team for the upcoming Ranji Trophy knockout fixtures.
