As Team India went through a grueling training session ahead of the Boxing Day Test against Australia at MCG, Little Master Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun too had a round of practice with the country's top cricketing stars.
Arjun Tendulkar reminds former cricketer Dean Jones of little Shaun Marsh.
Arjun is the 13-year-old son of Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
The Dhirubhai Ambani International School student was seen in a florescent yellow tee, black three-fourths and Ferrari cap, accompanying his father Sachin to the outdoor practice nets in Melboune Cricket Ground.
“I remember Swampy (Geoff Marsh) bringing a young Shaun (Marsh) to practice with him. The thing it does is it gives them a glimpse of how the game works at the highest level,” Dean was quoted in the Hindustan Times.
Arjun, who is a left-arm pacer, was caught taking suggestions from Indian pacer Zaheer Khan. While they were discussing about seam and swing, skipper MS Dhoni shared some light moments with the southpaw.
“If he does ever choose to go down the same road, he’ll look back at these experiences and won’t be overawed if he reaches this level,” Jones said.
Later both senior and junior Tendulkar went to indoor nets. While Arjun bowled to Indian computer analyst Dhananjay, Sachin chose to loosen himself up.
Under the guidance of Tendulkar, Arjun shows off his skill. While Sachin rolled his arm, Arjun played with the bat.
This summer, Arjun had also accompanied Sachin in London to the Lord’s Cricket Ground.
The practice session ended with Sehwag bowling to Arjun.
