Arjun Tendulkar was on Saturday , May 4 -2019 picked for Rs 5 lakh by the Aakash Tigers Mumbai Western Suburb for the season 2 of the T20 Mumbai League after an intense bidding.

Arjun who is left arm pacer and a batsman has represented India in unofficial Tests for India-U19 was included in the all-rounder category with a base price of Rs 1 lakh.

As his name came up several teams bid for him but the highest bid was raised to Rs 5 lakh by North Mumbai Panthers (The maximum bid price ) after which Charu Sharma, who was conducting the auction, gave the two new teams — Aakash Tigers Mumbai Western Suburb and Eagle Thane Strikers — an option to exercise the OTM (Opportunity to Match).

Both the new teams opted to exercise the OTM at Rs 5 lakh after which two cards were placed in a bag and Mumbai Cricket Association ad hoc committee member Unmesh Khanvilkar picked up a card which was of Aakash Tigers and that is how they got Arjun.

Meanwhile Sachin Tendulkar is the brand ambassador of the League.
