Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun is gearing up to play competitive cricket soon. He plays as an all-rounder, unlike Tendulkar, who played as a specialist batsman. Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav is a top player in the Indian Premier League, playing for current champions, Mumbai Indians.
Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar might be gone from cricket. However, in the form of his son, Arjun, his off-sping is gearing up to get into the circuit and play professional cricket soon.
Arjun was recently involved in a practice game for Mumbai, ahead of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, slated to get underway from January 10. However, things did not go well for him, as he was at the receiving end of a prime batsman, Suryakumar Yadav.
Arjun, who plays as an all-rounder, is a left-arm fast bowler. During the game, Suryakumar smashed him for 21 runs in an over, while the former also went on to score a 47-ball 120.
Suryakumar was leading his side, as he plundered ten fours and nine sixes, at an astonishing strike-rate of 255.32, while his team scored 213/5 after 20 overs. Meanwhile, Arjun's team was led by Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Arjun has been working hard to get into the circuit, as he continues to train under Rahul Drabd and WV Raman. He has also represented Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) against Namibia U-19, against who he impressed with the ball.
Suryakumar has been on a run-scoring spree since the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL), playing for current champions, Mumbai Indians (MI). He finished as its third-highest run-scorer, with 480 runs in 15 innings, at an average of 40.00, including four half-centuries, while he is yet to make his debut for Team India.
