Is history going to repeat all over again as legendary cricketer and favourite of all Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar becomes part of India Under-19 team?
A happy dad Sachin expressed his happiness over the same. He said, “We are happy on Arjun being selected in Indian under 19 team. It is an important milestone in his cricketing life. Anjali and I will always support Arjun in his choices and pray for his success.”
As Sachin’s son joins the Under-19 team, the question arises whether he will be able to match his father’s steps. However, it is unfair to compare as each has his own share of skills, but will be interesting to see if Arjun will be the next Sachin for India.
