Arjun Tendulkar, along with 19 others, has been summoned by the BCCI for a 20-day camp

The BCCI has summoned around 20 players who could make a quick transition to elite level, as they are eager to identify young multi-skilled players, for a near three-week camp at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. Legendary Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun, who plays first-class cricket for Goa and made his IPL debut in the last edition for Mumbai Indians, has also been called for the camp, beginning August.
As per the statement by a senior BCCI official, "There is an Emerging Asia Cup (U-23) also later this year, and BCCI is looking at potential youngsters. The all-rounders camp is an idea of NCA's head of cricket, VVS Laxman, to ensure that we develop a lot of multi-skilled players across formats."
It has been learned that the senior national selection committee, headed by Shiv Sunder Das, has selected players based on performance and potential.
The source further added that "not everyone summoned for camp is a pure all-rounder. Some are batting all-rounders, and some are the opposite. The idea is to tap their potential and help them upgrade their skills suitably for the transition to the next grade."
