Former India batsman Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun Tendulkar has been picked for Rs five lakhs, after an intense bidding process, by Akash Tigers Mumbai Western Suburb for the second season of the Mumbai T20 League. The 19-year-old all-rounder was one of the favourite player as almost every team bid for him which led to an intense bidding session.
Akash Tigers MWS and Eagle Thane Strikers both bid for Arjun for the highest bid amount any team can put in one player, which was five lakhs, as both the new teams used their "Opportunity to Match" which brought the bidding to a tie-breaker draw. Akash Tigers Mumbai Western Suburb got lucky as they got Arjun in a tie-breaker draw and got Tendulkar Junior to their side. (ANI)
