Arjun who was also a part of the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), didn’t get a chance to play in the league match so far. Mahela Jayawardene, the head coach of MI, said that Arjun needed to improve on certain aspects of his game to make it to a playing XI.
The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) also gave a No Objection Certificate (NoC) to Arjun, who applied for the same.
“He wanted to play for Goa in the forthcoming season, so he approached us. We told him to first get an NoC from MCA, which he got today. We will have his fitness and skill test going ahead. Like many players, Arjun wanted to play for Goa but a process will be followed before we pick him,” Vipul Phadke, the Goa Cricket Association secretary, was quoted as saying.
So far during their first game against Rajasthan at the end of day 1, Goa scored 210 runs for 5 wickets loss while Arjun Tendulkar stands unbeaten for 4 runs.
