In the Second XI Championship game of the South Group, the left-arm fast bowler Arjun Tendulkar has left an early mark while representing MCC Young Cricketers while taking on Surrey 2nd XI in the three-day competition at the High Wycombe Cricket Club.
Sachin Tendulkar‘s son, Arjun, has improved leaps and bounds and has set his base in England to work on his cricketing skills. The exciting all-rounder also has the knack of attempting searing yorkers in the nets, and he has equally been successful in his practice bouts.
In 2017, Arjun bowled a toe-crushing yorker to England batsman Jonny Bairstow. Thus, it had eventually become viral.
The 19-year-old youngster, who represents famous Marylebone Cricket Club‘s junior team, has represented India Under-19 team in July 2018 against Sri Lanka Under-19. However, the youngster had bowled decently in the youth Test.
How Arjun Tendulkar got NJ Tilley?
Arjun, who has the knack of striking early on, did his best to remove Surrey’s young opener NJ Tilley. With his smooth run-up, Arjun came wide from the crease only to see hitting Tilley’s off stump.
Well, Tilley had no clue whatsoever who eventually got cramped in his crease in a bid to defend the ball.
Tilley, who plays with a high backlift, couldn’t manage to get down his bat on time, as the quickish delivery did the rest of work. Thus, Arjun without expressing himself too much like his father maintained
Earlier, Surrey skipper FOE van den Bergh won the toss and decided to bat first on a decent 22-yard surface.
While writing this report, Surrey 2nd XI managed to post 220 for three in 45 overs.
In his first spell, Arjun has bowled eight overs which included two maidens. He conceded 33 runs at an average of 4.13. Unfortunately, the lanky pacer Arjun has struggled while overstepping on four occasions.
Also, RS Patel has struggled against Arjun in the early phase of Surrey’s innings.
Relish: Here’s the Jaffa from Arjun Tendulkar to NJ Tilley:
😳 Arjun Tendulkar, take a bow!
He took this stunning wicket this morning for @MCCYC4L.
