Arjun Tendulkar left-arm fast-bowling allrounder and son of the God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar. Arjun Tendulkar made his IPL debut in Mumbai Indians Vs Kolkata Knight Riders match. Sachin shared how it feels seeing his son debuting for the same franchise. Arjun bowled well in the powerplay and tried to swing the ball well. He did not get the opportunity to bowl in the death overs as the overseas bowlers did the job.

“Today, also I sat in dressing room as I didn’t want him (Arjun) to move away from his plans and start looking at mega screen and suddenly realise that I am watching him, so I was inside.”
Sachin Tendulkar further added that
“Different feeling because 2008 was first season for me and 16 years down the line, he plays for the same team, not bad. This was a new experience for me because till now I have not actually gone and watched him play. I wanted him to have the freedom to go out and express himself, and do whatever he wanted to,”
Arjun on his debut told that
“It was a great moment. A special one to play for the team that I supported since 2008 and it was nice to get the cap from captain of MI and Indian team,”
He got the cap from the Indian captain and Mumbai Indians Skipper Rohit Sharma. He ended by giving 17 runs in his two overs with the economy of 8.50. The debut was not bad.
