Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun gives England and Jonny Bairstow massive scare

Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun gives England and Jonny Bairstow massive scare

Lord's is a dream come true for any youngster who aspires to make it big in the gentlemen's game.

England batsman Jonny Bairstow walked out of the nets after facing just one delivery on Wednesday after the right-handed batsman suffered an unexpected injury scare while facing Arjun Tendulkar, son of legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar.

Notably, Tendulkar's son Arjun is a regular at the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and had been invited to join net bowlers in the past as well.

The 27-year-old batsman was his left foot by a deadly Yorker from the teenage Tendulkar.

However, proper medical assistance was provided to Bairstow on the ground. Fortunately, the injury wasn't serious enough to make Bairstow miss his match. And, Bairstow's participation in the first Test wasn't getting affected.




Arjun is a left-arm seamer and has played for the Mumbai Under-14 and Under-16 teams.

Arjun Tendulkar, unlike his illustrious father, is primarily a fast bowler.

Now, nearly five years after the Master Blaster's retirement, his son Arjun gave England a mighty scare before the Lord's Test against South Africa got underway. Arjun, who bowls medium pace, had a great time watching the Pakistani pace trio of Mohammed Aamer-Rahat Ali-Wahab Riaz, as all three are left-arm pacers.

Recently, he had the Indian media in a frenzy by padding up for a nets session with the South African team during the ICC Champions Trophy.
