For a person of Sachin Tendulkar’s stature, people always lay their eyes of the successors. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has certainly raised the bars of cricket by achieving some impossible records in all the International formats of cricket. Starting exclusively from a couple of years, his son Arjun Tendulkar is on news all the way since then.
It is his entry into cricket that roped him into the limelight. To be fair his left arm medium pace also speaks immensely about his abilities but just like every other star kid- he too is in the limelight not in the way they appreciate it.
One must understand that if it was about power, Arjun would have been in the Indian Team by now but Sachin would be the first one to advise him against using his name and we are glad that Arjun is following his father’s footsteps of determination and hard work to reach his goal.
We have seen Sachin Tendulkar’s son, Arjun Tendulkar recently joining in to test himself against the best in business while also learn some valuable techniques from India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun. Arjun has been practicing with a lot of teams off-late. His recent development in terms of cricket is quite impeccable.
Arjun Tendulkar played a key role in handing Mumbai a win over Assam in Cooch Behar Trophy match. The 18-year-old registered bowling figures of 4/44 in 15 overs in the second innings to anchor Mumbai to a win by an innings and 154 runs.
After winning the toss, Mumbai asked Assam to bat first and rode on a fifer from Sidak Singh to wrap Assam’s first innings at 94. For Assam, it was Sourav Saha who showed resistance and notched up a half-century for his side. Gunjandeka was the second highest scorer for Assam and one of only two players who got into double-figures.
In reply, Mumbai dominated the Assam bowling line up and scored 357. Varun Lavande top-scored with 118 while Suved Parkar and Karan Shah smashed individual half-centuries. Despite being pushed on the backfoot, Mukhtar Hussain gave Assam something to feel good about. Hussain scalped six Mumbai wickets while other bowlers struggled to produce fruitful results for the side.
The script didn’t really change for Assam in second innings as they just managed to put 109 runs on the board. Arjun bagged the wickets of opener Danish Ahmed, Sourav Saha, Gunjandeka and wicket-keeper Akhil Kalita. With this Mumbai have gathered seven points.
Last month, Arjuns took a five-wicket haul against Madhya Pradesh in the same tournament.
From time to time, Arjun got the opportunity to bowl to world’s biggest players like Virat Kohli. He was roped in as one of the net bowlers for India before India’s New Zealand ODI match against New Zealand in Mumbai. Earlier, he had injured England batsman Jonny Bairstow with Yorker during a net session at Lord’s.
