London: Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun was highly praised by England's assistant coach Paul Farbace. On Wednesday, the 15-year-old Arjun attended the England cricket team's net session at Lord's ahead of their Ashes Test against Australia.

He attended the net session at the request of Neil Burns, who has been one of the England's most influential independent coaches. This was revealed by Paul Farbace, the team's assistant coach.

Speaking exclusively from Lord's on Wednesday, he said, "Arjun bowled very nicely in the nets to the England team. He swung the ball in to the right handlers and away from the left handers."

"He has good control and bowled very well," he further added.

Interestingly, Farbace has also worked with the Sri Lankan team in the past.

"Neil Burns contacted me and asked if Arjun could watch practice yesterday, which I agreed to and then he asked if he could bowl today."

"We were delighted to invite him into our session this morning."

Ten years ago, Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun was also praised by former Australian batsman Greg Chappell. 

During Chappell's visit (not as a coach).to India in 2005, he met Arjun when he was a five year old boy.

"He (Arjun) is a intelligent young man; he thinks a lot before speaking," said Chappell of the youngster then.
