23-year-old Arjun Tendulkar has dealt with heavy spotlight since as a child because of being the son of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. That spotlight grew rapidly as he took strides in his cricket career.
After being part of the Mumbai Indians squad for the past two seasons and having an impressive 2022/23 domestic season with Goa, Arjun Tendulkar made his IPL debut this year and has featured in 2 matches so far.
Every move of junior Tendulkar has been under the scanner. Whether his not-so-good start with the Mumbai domestic team where he was benched for the majority of the 2021/22 season, or his moving to Goa to find more game time in domestic cricket. Or his bowling in the nets to Indian players and other renowned players.
Now, after he made his debut, vs KKR, and impressed with his new ball skillset, Arjun Tendulkar might have hoped for some lesser attention on whose son he is and more on what he’s doing as a player.
It seems like Arjun Tendulkar eventually got frustrated ahead of Mumbai’s match with SRH and seemed to have abused in frustration about the camera following him.
In a video that the fans have gotten hold to, from the practice time ahead of the MI-SRH game in Hyderabad, the 23-year-old youngster seems to abuse in annoyance at the camera constantly and regularly showing him. Some fans believe he said “Iski M* ki” while some reckon he said “Mujhe jaan much kar dikhate BC”.

What do you think of Arjun Tendulkar’s reaction? Let us know.
The left-arm seamer took his maiden IPL wicket against SRH, that of Bhuvneshwar Kumar while successfully defending 20 runs in the last over as MI won the match by 14 runs.
Speaking of his bowling and his emotions for his maiden wicket, Arjun Tendulkar said: “Obviously it was great getting my first IPL wicket. I just had to focus on what was in hand, the plan and executing it. Our plan was just to bowl wide and get the long boundary into play, make the batsman hit it to the longer side. I love bowling, I am happy to bowl anytime the captain asks me to and just stick to the team plan and give my best. We talk about cricket, we discuss tactics before the game and he tells me to back what I practise every game. I just focused on my release, bowling good lengths and lines upfront. If it swings, it’s a bonus, if it doesn’t, so be it.”
