Watch video of Arjun Tendulkar taking his maiden wicket:
He had a long run and bowled with Harsh Tyagi, who has taken two wickets till now. After the end of 41 overs, the home team was on a score of 154 at the loss of four wickets.
After his good show in junior cricket Arjun was selected in the India U-19 team. He is spearheading the pace attack of India U-19. However, next year he won’t be playing U-19 because he would be turning 20 next year.
He was taught by the master blaster himself, Arjun has a vast knowledge of bowling and that will surely come into play during the ongoing series. India U-19 are scheduled to play two four-day games followed by five one-day games.
Arjun’s other teacher and his father’s colleague Vinod Kambli ‘teared up’ when he saw the young man taking his maiden wicket. Vinod expressed his emotions on twitter by saying
Tears of joy rolled down when I saw this, have seen him grow up and put in the hard work in his game. Could not be more happy for you, Arjun. This is just the beginning, I wish you tons and ton of success in the days to come. Cherish your first wicket and enjoy the moment.👌 pic.twitter.com/vB3OmbaTWM
