slam against arjun tendulkar on under 16 selection | Pranav Mukherjee…

NEW DELHI: After talks with Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput about suicide, the issue of nepotism is back in India. Cricket fans in India say that many talented cricketers have been excluded from cricket teams in India. Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar has been the subject of much criticism as discussions on social media have revived. Criticism of Tendulkar’s inclusion in the under-16 West Zone squad in 2016 included Pranav Dhanwade. This is the first time four years ago there have been discussions about this. Tendulkar’s son Pranav Dhanwade, who scored 1009 runs in his school cricket’s 327-ball innings, has attracted international attention. The same image that came out four years ago is now roaming the social media. Fans now argue that there is a nepotism in cricket too. Arjun got team selection only because of Tendulkar’s son, excluding real talent like Pranav, and in cricket there is nepotism too – so goes the argument.But if you look at the facts, you will find that the criticism of Arjun Tendulkar is unnecessary. National Zone reports that the West Zone squad is usually comprised of players who play for Mumbai. The innings was set after Pranav Mukherjee broke the record for the Mumbai team. The Mumbai team had already played a few matches. Pranav Dhanwade’s father has come up with an explanation for the ongoing allegations.Pranav’s father Prashant responded that the selection of Mumbai Under-16 team was done before his son scored 1009 runs. Pranav did not get a selection in the team. Arjun and Pranam are best friends. Prashant responded to a national press. From the words of Pranav’s father, it is clear that there is no nepotism in the selection of Arjun Tendulkar. Arjun is currently playing in the under-19s. There have been reports in 2017 that Pranav Dhanwade has not been able to keep his eye on cricket. Later, Pranav got active again in college competitions.
