April 22,2022(New Delhi): Arjun Tendulkar, the son of the ‘God of Cricket’ himself, has set social media on fire. Sachin Tendulkar’s son hasn’t made his debut for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League. But he is certainly making all the right noises to get his maiden IPL cap. In a recent video posted by Mumbai Indians (MI) on their official Twitter handle, the bowling all-rounder is seen bowling an accurate yorker to his Mumbai Indians teammate, Ishan Kishan. The yorker comprehensively beats Kishan and crashes into the stumps. After dismissing the most expensive player of this year’s IPL auction with a searing yorker, Arjun can be seen celebrating in an adorable fashion.
The fiery delivery has broken the internet and MI’s tweet has gone viral with over 8,500 likes. It is worth noting that the 22-year-old often posts about his training on his Instagram where he has an impressive following of over 300,000 followers.
Kishan was bought by Mumbai Indians in the players’ auction held in February for Rs 15.25 crore. He was the highest selling player in this year’s auction. Arjun dodged this left-handed batsman and bowled it. Before Kishan’s bat came down, the ball hit his off-stump.
Arjun has been a part of the Mumbai Indians team for some time now. However, he never got a chance to play. In February this year, Mumbai Indians included in their team by paying 30 lakh rupees. Mumbai’s team has lost six matches in this season of IPL. In such a situation, they can also try Arjun. He can give edge to Mumbai’s bowling attack. Apart from Jasprit Bumrah, no other bowler has been able to make an impact for Mumbai this year.
The team captained by Rohit Sharma will face Chennai Super Kings captained by Ravindra Jadeja on Thursday. Chennai team has won one match out of six in this season of IPL. At the same time, the Mumbai team has not been able to open the account yet.
Mumbai Indians will face Lucknow Super Giants on April 24, and it remains to be seen if Arjun Tendulkar makes his much awaited debut in the marquee T20 league.
