Like their father, the media glare never misses their trail. Sara and Arjun Tendulkar are not just another pair of siblings but the children of the world’s most celebrated batsman Sachin Tendulkar. On Tuesday, Arjun Tendulkar bid adieu to his teens to turn 20 and Sara, who is a couple of years elder to him, wished him on social platform Instagram. Like his father, Arjun has also chosen cricket as his passion, though he uses the ball as his primary weapon, unlike Sachin. He also is a left-arm cricketer, unlike his father.
Sara, who will turn 22 next month, posted a series of family pictures on the occasion of her beloved brother’s birthday and said that she could not believe that he has already entered his twenties. The pictures showed the sibling duo smiling adorably and thus the close bonding they share. Former India cricketer Vinod Kambli, a close friend of Sachin, also wished Arjun wishing his cricketing career grows just like his height.
Here’s Sara’s Instagram update
Arjun has played for various age-based junior India teams
Arjun, who played in a number of age-based junior teams, last appeared in a game for Marylebone Cricket Club Young Cricketers against Glamorgan 2nd XI at High Wycombe, England, but went wicketless. In the game before against Gloucestershire 2nd XI, Tendulkar’s 4 for 19 in the second innings saw the opponents getting skittled out for 81 to lose by an innings and 46 runs. Last year, Arjun went to Sri Lanka with the India U19 side and played in a number of games.
Both Sara and Arjun have a huge fan following on social media. While Sara studied in Mumbai’s Dhirubhai Ambani International School before shifting base to London, Arjun continues to concentrate on cricket. As kids, both were seen accompanying their parents – Sachin and Anjali – to various cricket tournaments.

Sachin, who played for India between 1989 and 2013, is considered one of the greatest the game has seen. He played in a record 200 Tests and 463 ODIs and scored 100 international hundreds besides taking more than 200 international wickets. His tally of 100 centuries, however, has come under threat from compatriot Virat Kohli who has 68 at the moment, 43 of which have come in the ODIs. Sachin has 49 in the 50-over format.
