Virat Kohli led Indian Cricket Team has had their first practice session in England on Monday (26 June) and it has turned many heads and grabbed a quite lot of attention for obvious reasons, as Arjun Tendulkar, son of Cricket Icon Sachin Tendulkar has also joined the national squad as a net bowler.

Arjun, who is a part of India U-19 team's four-day squad for the Sri Lanka tour next month, was among those net bowlers who were bowling to the Indian batsmen before their Ireland series.

Arjun has also joined the Indian team in England in a bid to help them with his bouncers to get ready for the Ireland T20 Internationals at the Merchant Taylor’s school in London.

Arjun was seen bowling at Kohli, MS Dhoni and among other batsmen during the net session before India’s first T20I against Ireland in Dublin on 27 June (Wednesday). During the practice session, Captain Kohli was seen at his very best as usual and raring to go against Ireland and England.

Noteworthy, it was not the first time when Arjun tested Indian batsmen with his bouncers at the nets. He was earlier seen bowling to the Indian women cricketers during the 2017 Women's World Cup in England. 

Meanwhile, former Indian pacer Ashish Nehra also visited the Indian Team during the session along with his young son at the 285-acre private school in Hertfordshire at the outskirts of London.

The 18-year-old fast-bowler will soon be back in India to attend pre-departure camp at National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore to join India A squad for Sri Lanka series.

On the other hand, Indian will take on Ireland in the second T20I on 29 June in Dublin and the will depart for England against which they will play three ODIs, three T20Is and five Tests.
