Arjun Tendulkar’s IPL debut was widely followed as he played his first match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Mumbai Indians (MI) against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
While Arjun, son of Sachin Tendulkar, could not scalp any wicket in his first match, the wait ended in his second match, that too in a tense last over against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
With SRH needing 20 runs in the last over, Arjun scalped his maiden wicket on the fifth ball as he dismissed Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was caught by Rohit Sharma at covers. Before that, Arjun looked like following a plan and delivered a couple of good yorkers to keep the SRH batters at bay.
MI ultimately won by 14 runs as Rohit Sharma was ecstatic after Arjun got his first wicket.
