Arjun Tendulkar, son of the god of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar who is known for his unique records and have been inspiration for people choosing the cricket as their passion. Sachin Tendulkar’s son is also in the list people who got inspired by him. Sachin Tendulkar's, 18-year-old son made his arrival in the international arena with a wicket in his first 12 balls for India U-19
The focus was on Arjun's debut as India's U-19 team dominated its counterparts from Sri Lanka on the opening day of the first Youth Test at the Nondescripts Cricket Club Ground.
Tendulkar junior, whose father made his senior India debut at the age of 16 back in 1989, needed only 12 balls to claim his maiden wicket, trapping Sri Lanka U-19 opener Kamil Mishara.
Arjun took the wicket in his second over after trapping Mishara in front of the stumps. Left-arm pacer Tendulkar bowled an inswinging length delivery and the left-handed Mishra failed to read the ball and got out at 9.
The India U19 side then rode on four-wicket hauls from Harsh Tyagi and Ayush Badoni to wrap up Sri Lanka's first innings for 244.
Unlike his legendary father Sachin Tendulkar, who was known as the best batsmen of all time, the 18-year-old Arjun is a left-arm pacer and comes down the order to play for the team.
Arjun Tendulkar was part of Mumbai's Under-19 squad in the Cooch Behar Trophy last season where he impressed everyone when he picked up two five-wicket hauls and a four-wicket haul. He returned with 18 wickets overall with an average of 25.22 for Mumbai. The best part about his both five-wicket hauls was that it included the wickets of the opposition's top four batsmen.
Arjun didn't strike again in the innings and returned with figures of 1/33 in 11 overs.
At stumps on the first day, India U-19 were strongly placed at 92 for one.
After watching Arjun taking his maiden wicket in international cricket, former India cricketer and Sachin Tendulkar's childhood friend Vinod Kambli took to Twitter and expressed his feelings for him.
"Tears of joy rolled down when I saw this, have seen him grow up and put in the hard work in his game. Could not be more happy for you, Arjun. This is just the beginning, I wish you tons and ton of success in the days to come. Cherish your first wicket and enjoy the moment," Kambli's tweet read.
With two Youth Test matches and five ODIs, India will look forward to win the upcoming matches.
