Sachin Tendulkar‘s son Arjun warmed the benches for 28 Indian Premier League matches across two seasons, and Sachin Tendulkar the batting legend has warned the aspiring all-rounder that the road ahead will be difficult and that he must work hard.
Sachin Tendulkar does not interfere in selections
The cricket legend, who has been linked to the Mumbai Indians, has also stated that he does not interfere with team selections.
Arjun, a left-arm pacer and left-handed hitter, was signed by Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL champions, although he did not appear in a single game during the lucrative league’s two seasons.
“This is a different type of question. It doesn’t matter what I’m thinking or feeling. The season has come to an end” When asked if he would have loved to see Arjun play this year, Tendulkar replied on the show ‘SachInsight.’
“And my conversation with Arjun has always been that the path is going to be challenging, it is going to be difficult. You started playing cricket because you are in love with cricket, continue to do so, continue to work hard and results will follow,” added Tendulkar, who has numerous world records to his name.
Tendulkar, a 200-Test veteran, says he bows down to team management when it comes to selection.
“And, if we’re talking about selection, I’ve never participated in it. I leave all of these responsibilities to the (team) leadership since that is how I have always operated” Tendulkar stressed.
Arjun, who is 22 years old, has only appeared in two T20 games for his domestic team Mumbai and in the ‘T20 Mumbai’ league.
