Arjun Tendulkar

Son of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun Tendulkar produced a sensational performance in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy on October 14, Friday. The left-arm seamer picked up four wickets for just 10 runs in four overs for Goa against Hyderabad at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, and it was Arjun’s career-best T20 figures. However, all his efforts went in vain as Goa ended up losing the match by 37 runs.

Arjun opened the attack for Goa after captain Snehal Suhas Kauthankar won the toss and put Hyderabad to bat first. He conceded just a single in his first two overs in the powerplay. He provided Goa with the first breakthrough dismissing opener Prateek Reddy for just three runs in 10 balls.

The 23-year-old was recalled for his bowing duties in the death overs. In the 17th over, he dismissed Rahul Buddhi for eight runs and Ravi Teja for four, in a space of just four deliveries. He further got rid of the dangerous Tilak Varma, who had scored an impressive 46-ball 62, in the 19th over of the innings.

Indian Cricket Board also shared the video of Arjun’s bowling masterclass on their Twitter handle with the caption, “4 Overs, 10 runs, 4 wickets. Arjun Tendulkar scalped a fantastic four-wicket haul for Goa against Hyderabad. Watch the left-arm pacer’s bowling spell here”

Despite Arjun’s efforts, Hyderabad managed to reach 177 for six on the back of brilliant half-centuries from Tanmay Agarwal and Tilak Varma. Goa fell 38 runs short of the target as they were bundled out for 140 runs in 18.5 overs. No other batter apart from Aditya Kaushik managed to surpass the 30-run-mark.

Arjun did not pick any wicket in his first match this season in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy against Tripura on October 11 but managed two wickets in the match against Manipur in Jaipur for 20 runs.

Notably, Arjun had shifted to Goa in a bid to gain more action in domestic cricket. He managed to make just two appearances in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for Mumbai in the 2020/21 season. Here’s how Twitter reacted to
