Tendulkar Stars for Mumbai; Takes 5-Wicket Haul in Cooch Behar Under-19 Trophy

Postby bolero » Thu Nov 23, 2017 10:12 am

New Delhi: Arjun Tendulkar — the son of legendary India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar — shone the brightest for Mumbai, as he took a five-wicket haul against Madhya Pradesh in the Cooch Behar Under-19 Trophy, on Wednesday.

In the first innings, Arjun had figures of 1-42. The match was drawn and Mumbai took the first innings lead to grab three points. Madhya Pradesh U-19 after put into bat scored 361 in their first innings, Mumbai replied strongly by putting on board 506 all-out to take the lead.

In the second innings, Madhya Pradesh declared for 411/8 and Mumbai were 47/1 in their second innings when the match was declared drawn. Arjun wrecked the MP top-order in the second innings by removing the top four batsmen. The promising left-arm medium pacer then completed his fifer by claiming the wicket of a tail-ender.

Arjun has been rising steadily amongst the ranks as earlier, he was selected to represent Mumbai in the 5th Late Shri J Y Lele All India Under-19 Invitational One Day tournament as well. Also, the left-arm bowler was earlier pictured bowling to Virat Kohli and other Indian batsmen during their net session ahead of the first New Zealand ODI at the Wankhede Stadium last month.

Arjun also hit the headlines earlier, after he became a net bowler for the women's Indian cricket team on eve of their World Cup final against England, which they lost by mere nine runs, in July.

More recently, according to a report in the Daily Mail, England batsman Jonny Bairstow was taken aback when a yorker from Arjun Tendulkar hit him on the foot during a practice session at the Lord's. The 27-year-old was pinned on the foot by a yorker from Arjun and hobbled out of the nets. Bairstow's left foot was placed briefly in a compression unit to ease the pain during the session.
