Mumbai: Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar made his debut for Mumbai Indians in the IPL cricket match against Kolkata Knight Riders.
23 year old Arjun Tendulkar was born on 24th September 1999 in Mumbai. Arjun has developed himself as a fast bowler instead of becoming a batsman like his father. A left-arm fast bowler, he made his U-19 India debut against Sri Lanka in 2018. He has also played for Mumbai for Syed Mushtaq Ali Cup cricket.
Mumbai Indians bought him in the IPL auction in 2021. In this case, he made his debut for Mumbai Indians in the match held yesterday. Arjun thanked Rohit Sharma by giving him a hat and giving him a hug. Teammates also congratulated Arjun.
This match was witnessed by Sachin Tendulkar, his wife Anjali and daughter Sara at the stadium. The IPL management has released a video of Sachin and his son Sachin expressing their views on the launch of the IPL tournament.
Speaking first, Arjun said, “This is a very big moment for me. It’s great to make my debut for a team I’ve supported since 2008. It is also a pleasure to buy the debut cap from Mumbai Indians and Indian team captain Rohit Sharma,” he said.
Sachin continued, “This is a completely new experience for me. Because I have never been to see Arjun play.
I don’t go to watch him play just to be free to go out and express himself and do whatever he wants. Yesterday also he did not enter the stadium. I was sitting in the room inside. If you sit in the dug-out, they will show me on the screen here. It will distract Arjun from his plans. Don’t want it.
However, this is different. 2008 IPL was my first season. Arjun is happy to play for the same team after 16 years.
