Kapil Dev On Arjun Tendulkar: Mumbai Indians’ young player Arjun Tendulkar did not get a chance to be included in the team’s playing XI even in IPL 2022. Arjun Tendulkar is a part of Mumbai Indians from IPL 2021. Recently, World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev has given a big statement on Arjun Tendulkar.
Kapil Dev’s special appeal
Kapil Dev believes that Arjun Tendulkar will always feel the extra pressure because his surname is Tendulkar. But they have to play their own game. Kapil Dev said, ‘Why is everyone talking about him, because he is Sachin’s son. Let him play his cricket and don’t compare him with Sachin. There are advantages and disadvantages to naming Tendulkar. Don Bradman’s son changed his name because he could not handle that kind of pressure, because everyone expected him to turn out to be like his father.
Kapil Dev said this big thing
Kapil Dev further said in his statement, ‘Don’t put pressure on Arjun. He is a young player. When a great player like Sachin Tendulkar is his father, then who are we to tell him anything? The only thing I would like to tell Arjun is go and enjoy your game. There is no need to prove anything. If you can become 50 percent like your father then nothing can be better than this. When Tendulkar’s name comes up, our hopes go up because Sachin was a great player.
Played only 2 T20s in domestic cricket
For Mumbai Indians, IPL 2022 was no less than a nightmare. The team could not even reach the playoffs. Despite this, Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar did not get a chance for the entire tournament. 22-year-old Arjun has played only two T20 matches for his home team Mumbai in his career so far. Arjun Tendulkar was bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs 30 lakh in the IPL Mega Auction.
