Sachin Tendulkar explains why he watched his son Arjun’s IPL debut from inside the Mumbai Indians change room.
Standing at 1.83m tall, the 23-year-old left-hander was given the new ball by Mumbai for their match against the Kolkata Knight Riders at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.
Arjun went wicketless in his two overs, giving away 17 runs, in a match that Mumbai won.
