It’s a big day for cricket fans as 23-year-old left-arm fast bowler, Arjun Tendulkar, son of the legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, is set to make his debut for the Mumbai Indians in the 2023 IPL against the Kolkata Knight Riders. It will be exciting to see how he performs in his first IPL game.
Arjun was seen chatting with his father, who is part of the Mumbai Indians’ support staff, before the toss, which led to speculations that he might be playing in the game.
The team sheet confirmed the news, and Arjun will be bringing his left-arm pace and some big hits to the lower middle order. It will be exciting to see how he performs in his first IPL game.
Arjun Tendulkar had joined the Mumbai Indians ahead of the 2021 IPL season but didn’t get a chance to make his debut in his first two years with the franchise. However, in the 2023 IPL match against the Kolkata Knight Riders, he finally got the opportunity to play for MI. This made history, as he and his father Sachin became the first father-son duo to feature for the same franchise in IPL history. Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan tweeted about the occasion, wishing Arjun good luck for his debut game.
