The IPL 2020 starts this week with the defending champions Mumbai Indians facing the Chennai Super Kings on 19 September. All the eight teams are searching for the perfect balance between enough rest and enough practice before the long tournament begins. Some of the Mumbai Indians players were seen relaxing in the pool on 14 September, Monday amidst a week of practice.

Their premier leg-spinner Rahul Chahar tweeted a picture of him with Trent Boult, Saurabh Tiwary, James Pattinson and a few others in the pool. The post received a lot of questions in the comments as a new face in Arjun Tendulkar was spotted with the players.

The young Tendulkar has travelled to the UAE as a net bowler for the Mumbai Indians. Every team has flown in some net bowlers along with them to get enough practice ahead of the IPL. For the disappointment of those asking whether the left-hander has been picked by the four-time title winners, he will just be bowling in the nets and not during the games.

Here is the picture posted by Rahul Chahar:

Sachin Tendulkar's son was seen practicing with the Mumbai Indians previously as well but this year he has been flown with the team to Abu Dhabi and is officially their net bowler for the season.
