Arjun Tendulkar emulated his father Sachin Tendulkar's feat on his First-Class debut, slamming a ton for Goa on Day 2 of the team's Ranji Trophy 2022 fixture against Rajasthan on Wednesday, December 14.
Arjun, who walked in at No. 7, impressed many with his batting exploits as he crossed the three-figure mark in his maiden Ranji Trophy outing. The left-handed batter mustered 120 runs off 207 balls before being dismissed by Kamlesh Nagarkoti.
Notably, Sachin scored a ton on his Ranji Trophy debut in 1988 while playing for Mumbai in a match against Gujarat. Several fans took to social media, lauding the talented youngster for his inspired batting performances.
Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:
Suyash Prabhudessai was the star performer with the bat for Goa in their 1st innings, scoring a fantastic double hundred. The batter scored 212 runs to put his side in a commanding position.
Meanwhile, Arjun Tendulkar had parted ways with the Mumbai team ahead of the ongoing domestic season to shift base to Goa. He will be a part of the Mumbai Indians (MI) squad for the forthcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
