Sachin Tendulkar’s son, Arjun Tendulkar, made a magnificent century in his debut game in Ranji Trophy. Arjun is representing Goa this season.

Arjun Tendulkar decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and pursue cricket. However, the pressure of being the son of Sachin Tendulkar, popularly known as the “God of Cricket,” got to him multiple times. But, he does enjoy some privileges as well. Arjun had accompanied Team India in the past on overseas tours as a net bowler. He even trained with the England cricket team as their net bowler on multiple tours.

Furthermore, Mumbai Indians picked Arjun Tendulkar for the IPL. But, he is yet to have a game. Moreover, Arjun has been associated with Mumbai’s team in the domestic circuit. However, due to a lack of chances, he decided to make a switch and joined Goa last year.

Arjun made his domestic debut for Goa in the Ranji Trophy. The team faced Rajasthan, and Arjun hit a splendid century on Day 2 of the match. Arjun came in at no.7 and scored 120 runs in his debut Ranji game, eventually succumbing to Kamlesh Nagarkoti.

Arjun successfully emulated Sachin Tendulkar’s rare feat. Incidentally, Sachin Tendulkar scored a 100 in his debut Ranji game as well, 34 years ago, in the year 1988. Sachin went on to be India’s finest cricketer, scoring 100 international centuries. Arjun is having a successful stint with Goa since the time he arrived. He set a career-high by taking four wickets and allowing only 17 runs.

The 23-year-old trained under Yuvraj Singh’s father, Yograj Singh, to improve his batting abilities. However, Arjun has often faced severe criticism over Sachin Tendulkar’s reputation. He has been accused of nepotism in the past. But, the all-rounder remained unfazed, kept his head down, and worked hard.
