On Tuesday, the IPL 2023 match saw Mumbai Indians triumph over Sunrisers Hyderabad by a margin of 14 runs. After being asked to bat first, MI managed to set a formidable total of 192/5 in 20 overs, with an unbeaten knock of 64 from Cameron Green. SRH were then dismissed for 178 runs thanks to the collective effort of the entire MI bowling unit.
Arjun Tendulkar, son of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, had a memorable game as he defended 20 runs in the final over and took his maiden IPL wicket. Arjun’s performance received high praise, with figures of 1/18 in 2.5 overs. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar drew a striking comparison between the father-son pair, affirming that Arjun has inherited Sachin’s temperament.
Gavaskar, speaking on Star Sports Cricket Live, remarked that while Sachin Tendulkar’s early career talent is often discussed, it was his exceptional temperament that stood out, and this trait appears to have been passed down to his son, Arjun. According to Gavaskar, Arjun also displays sharp thinking abilities and it is promising to see a young player like him entrusted with delivering the final over for his team.
