A couple of matches into IPL 2023 for the young Arjun Tendulkar and he is already grabbing the eyeballs for all the right reasons. A left-arm medium fast pacer and he is clocking 120 kays that have seen him deliver the goods in a pretty decent manner. He is harder on the accuracy of his deliveries and the way he tucks them around with precision is why he is someone to be feared a lot more.
Given the fact that he is Sachin Tendulkar’s son, it is obvious that the world will have its eyes fixed on him. Hence, the pressure is immense. However, he has been a pretty decent presence in the domestic circuit for Mumbai and now he has been ruling the roost in the IPL too.
A Glance at Arjun Tendulkar’s Rise for Mumbai Indians
Arjun managed to walk out of the initial fire of baptisms, as he raged well against the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Sunrisers Hyderabad, propelling them to two clinical wins. He hasn’t been extraordinary but the modesty mixed with his eye for decent figures, make him a pretty good slot for the Men in Blue.

Arjun Tendulkar is more of a bowling all-rounder as he walks out to bat at number 6 or 7, providing a bookend to the batting line-ups of his side. However, the youngster has been pretty strong with the ball in his hands and he has been rocking the show in clinical fashion as well.
This is what Rashid Latif had to say about Arjun Tendulkar
Pakistan’s former wicket-keeper, Rashid Latif had so much to talk about the young gun as he keeps on rising through the ranks. Rashid said, “Arjun must have seen a lot of Zaheer Khan, Wasim Akram, and Ashish Nehra. Then he must also have bowled plenty to his father. See when Sachin used to bat, the likes of Ganguly, Sehwag, and Dravid hardly got a chance. So, it’s quite possible that every time the father-son duo played at home, Arjun did most of the bowling.”
