The Indian team is scheduled to play four-day and one-day matches in Sri Lanka in July. The all-rounder has been picked for the two four-day matches that India will play against Sri Lanka. Arjun was part of the main group of U-19 cricketers attended the camp in Zonal Cricket Academy (ZCA) and played matches in Una. India will travel to Sri Lanka next month for the series. The four-day squad will be led by Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Anuj Rawat who made his first-class debut for Delhi in the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy season on October 2017. He was earlier picked for the U-19 Asia Cup 2017.
