Arjun Tendulkar has always been under the spotlight as he is son of the great Sachin Tendulkar. But unlike his father who is still regarded as the best batsman the cricket has ever seen, Arjun is a left-arm pace-bowling all-rounder, one of the rare combinations found in India. Not that Sachin didn’t bowl at all. Rather he picked 201 international wickets in his career. But he was a spinner and hardly bowled in the latter half of his illustrious career.
But his young son has decided to carve out a different career in cricket it seems. Left-arm pace-bowler and him being an effective batsman is a rare species in the world cricket, leave alone India. And Arjun has been impressive so far in his plight in the cricket he’s played in his age groups.
However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic he has been stuck at home along with his family in Mumbai. During the quarantine time, the 20-year-old, on Saturday, decided to conduct a Q&A session on his official Instagram handle and answered some of the interesting questions from the fans.
Arjun Tendulkar shares some bowling tips to his fans
One of the fans, during the session, asked Arjun Tendulkar to share some bowling tips. Arjun, time and again, posts the video clips of his bowling in his Instagram stories when he plays for different teams. However, when he was asked to share the tips, he said that the attitude is the most important thing for a fast bowler.
He also suggested the fan that a pace bowler should always look to bowl quick and attack the batsman. “You must have attitude of a fast bowler. You must want to bowl to quick and break the batsman’s helmet,” Arjun Tendulkar wrote.
Here’s his story:
As far as his cricketing action is concerned, Arjun Tendulkar last played in a known cricketing match in August 2019. He featured for Marylebone Cricket Club Young Cricketers (MCC YC) team. He plays across all the formats for them and has performed decently during his limited appearances for the team.
