Good Sports: YOUNG TENDULKAR GETS A CHANCE
The offspring of sports stars are rarely able to live up to the family name. For 18-year-old Arjun Tendulkar, carrying the name of a cricket legend brings immense pressure but also opportunity. A left-arm fast bowler who ranked 43rd in the list of wicket-takers in Cooch Behar Trophy, the national U-19 tournament, he was nevertheless selected for India’s under-19 squad, scheduled to play two four-day games against Sri Lanka.
A senior cricket official, asked about the pressure Tendulkar will face, told PTI, “He is eyeing to become a professional cricketer. He is another member of this Indian squad and he will have to perform. The selectors have given him a chance looking at his potential.”
