Not long after Sachin Tendulkar bid adieu to ODI format of the game, his son, Arjun Tendulkar, 13, has been selected to represent Mumbai under-14 team. Tendulkar Jr. would play for his team in the West Zone League match, which is scheduled to be played in the coming days at Ahmedabad.
ARJUN TENDULKAR has come up with good show with the willow in inter-school tournaments, which especially paved the way for his inclusion in Mumbai's under-14 team. Arjun has scored more than 250 runs in the last five outings during the inter-school competition, reported India Today. Arjun is currently a student of Dhirubhai Ambani School at Bandra-Kurla Complex.
After his school performances, he was called up for a camp. It was his performances in the season training camp that caught the eye of many. This is not the first time that Arjun got recognised with fame, but his first century last year in June had also received wide attention. Arjun is also a good bowler, as he took eight wickets in one of the inter-school matches while representing his school.
Sachin had made his debut for Mumbai Ranji team at the age of 14. So this in itself should explain where the son and dad stand. Even if the player makes it to the Indian team in the near future, the nation would respect him even if he just accomplishes half of what his father achieved. For those who want to compare the dad and son, there is one big difference as Arjun is a left hander while Sachin spelt magic with his right hand.
