Mumbai: Arjun Tendulkar bowled to Australia team ahead of their clash against rivals New Zealand in ICC World Cup 2019.

While Australia lock horns with New Zealand at the Lord's, Arjun Tendulkar is helping the Australian team in the nets with an aspiration to shine with the ball.

This is not the first time that Arjun has bowled in the nets for England. In 2015, as a 15-year-old, he was part of the group of net bowlers which helped England prepare for the second Ashes Test against Australia.

Arjun, 19, has played for MCC Young Cricketers against Surrey Second XI, picking up two wickets in High Wycombe last week.

Bowling from over the wicket, he produced a beauty of a delivery to castle opener Nathan Tilley in just his second over. After disturbing Tilley's stumps, Arjun dismissed lower-order batsman BBA Geddes, returning figures of 11-2-50-2.
