India vs England 2nd Test Lords: Sachin Tendulkar's Son Arjun Tendulkar Bowls to ICC No 1 test Batsman Virat Kohli During Net Practice -- WATCH
India vs England 2nd Test Lords:
Young Arjun Tendulkar was again spotted bowling to India captain Virat Kohli in the nets ahead of the crucial Lord's Test. This is not the first time that Sachin Tendulkar's son has bowled to the current Indian team, but did roll his arms over at the start of the tour as well. India cricket team probably wanted Arjun to bowl to them as they had problems countering Sam Curran in the Edgbaston Test that they lost by 31 runs.
Here is the video where you spot Arjun running into bowl to Kohli in the nets at the Merchant Taylor school ground, where Arjun plays his cricket in the UK.
Meanwhile, thanks to his 149, followed by a 51, Kohli has surpassed Steve Smith to become ICC's No 1 Test batsman with 934 points. The problem this visiting Indian team is facing is that they are heavily dependant on Kohli. If he does not fire, there is a problem.
Also, former legend Sunil Gavaskar too slammed the team for their lack of preparation ahead of the Edgbaston Test.
