Tendulkar Time Again? Sachin’s Son Arjun Takes 5-For in U-19 Game
Arjun Tendulkar – son of cricket legend Sachin – takes a five-wicket haul for Mumbai in the U-19 Cooch Behar Trophy.
If your surname reads Tendulkar, anything you do on the cricket field is observed closely by many. It’s a pressured burden for anyone to carry, in particular a teenager – but young Arjun Tendulkar didn’t let that faze him while playing in an under-19 match in New Delhi on Wednesday, 21 November.
The 19-year-old, son of the legendary Bharat Ratna, picked up a five-wicket haul for Mumbai against Delhi in an U-19 Cooch Behar Trophy game.
The junior Tendulkar returned with figures of 5/98 as Delhi U-19 slumped to 394/9 in their first essay at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium at stumps on day three.
Delhi trail Mumbai by 59 runs going into the final day of the four-day game, with the visitors having amassed 453 in their first innings.
Arjun's scalps included Delhi skipper Ayush Badoni, Vaibhav Kandpal, wicket-keeper Gulzar Singh Sandhu, Hrithik Shokeen and Prashant Kumar Bhati.
A promising left-arm pacer, Arjun is a regular member of the Mumbai U-19 team, and has also played two U-19 games for India against Sri Lanka earlier this year, where he claimed three wickets.
In the past, Tendulkar Jr. has also bowled at the nets of the senior Indian team in London and at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
