It’s interesting to note that Bhunveshwar gained notoriety by getting Sachin Tendulkar, the father of Arjun Tendulkar, out for a duck in the Ranji Trophy final.
When discussing his strategies after the game, Arjun said he planned to bowl wide yorkers. Arjun asserted that he frequently discusses the game with his father, Sachin, and that they have tactical discussions together.
“My plan was to just bowl wide and get the batsmen hitting into the longer side. I was itching to bowl, yes. I love bowling and happy to bowl any time. We [Sachin and him] talk a lot about cricket. We talk tactics and plans. I just focused on my release and the lengths I want to bowl. If it swings, it is a bonus; if it doesn’t, so be it,” said Arjun.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar was struck out by Arjun Tendulkar, and Rohit Sharma made a catch
MI skipper Rohit Sharma expressed his excitement on playing with Arjun and recalled playing with his father, and called it life coming ‘full circle.’ “It’s quite exiting to play with Arjun. Life has come full circle. Arjun has been part of the squad for the last three years. I have seen him grow. He understands what he wants to do, and he is quite confident he can do it. He is trying to swing the new ball, and bowling yorkers at the death,” said Rohit in the post-match presentation.
On Sunday at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Arjun made his IPL debut. As the game came to a close, Arjun took one wicket and gave up just 18 runs in 2.5 overs to the opponents.
