Sachin was naughty in his childhood. His brother Ajit took him to cricket coach Ramakant Achrekar, where his cricketing journey began. Initially, Ramakant was not impressed with Sachin’s batting skills, but Ajit’s conviction helped Sachin get another chance, which he did not waste.

They first met at an airport in the year 1990, while Sachin was returning from an international match and Anjali was present to receive her mother. It was love at first sight as Anjali’s lack of cricket knowledge made her pursue her interest in Sachin and later, she went on to learn about him.

Anjali belongs to an industrialist’s family. Her father’s name is Anand Mehta, while her mother’s name is Annabel.

Does Sachin Tendulkar have kids?

Sachin Tendulkar and Anjali Tendulkar have two kids, Sara Tendulkar and Arjun Tendulkar. Sara Tendulkar is two years older than Arjun Tendulkar.

Sara is very close to her maternal grandmother Annabel. In one of her Instagram posts, Sara labeled Annabel as her partner-in-crime.


Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar is an Indian cricketer. Arjun followed in the footsteps of his father to the cricket field. However, he is not a top-order batter.

Arjun is a left-arm fast bowler who can also hit a few big shots with the willow. He received his maiden domestic cap during the 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Mumbai Indians signed him for 20 lakhs at IPL Auction 2021.

Unfortunately, he did not get to play in the season that ensued and was ultimately released ahead of the 2022 mega-auction. MI claimed his services for INR 30 Lakhs in the auction but again, the seam-bowling all-rounder did not get game time in the actual season even as Mumbai continued to lose game after game. However, Arjun debuted for the Mumbai Indians against the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2023, marking the occasion with MI team mentor Sachin as the first-ever father-son duo to have played in IPL history.


In a bid to get more chances on the domestic front, Arjun parted ways with the Mumbai State Cricket Association and signed up with Goa ahead of the 2022/23 domestic season.

He made his Ranji Trophy debut against Rajasthan in December 2022 and went on to score his maiden FC ton.
