Arjun Tendulkar, son of Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, received praise from his family after picking up his maiden IPL wicket in a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. During the game, Arjun initially bowled a couple of overs for 14 runs and was then held back for a spell later on. With 20 to defend off the final over, Arjun held his nerves and allowed just five runs off as many deliveries as SRH were bowled out for 178. Sachin Tendulkar tweeted his pride in his son, saying “And finally a Tendulkar has an IPL wicket!” while Arjun’s sister Sara shared a story on Instagram with the caption “Can’t stop watching the highlights.”
Arjun said he was happy to bowl whenever the captain asked him to and just stick to the team plan and give his best. Mumbai Indians won the match with a superb all-round performance.
