A Big Day for father SACHIN TENDULKAR:Tendulkar Jr comes good with the bat in Pune

Sachin Tendulkar’s son ArjunTendulkar had a significant hand in MIG Cricket Club’s eight-wicket win over PCMC Varroc Vengsarkar CA in the Cadence Trophy (30-over) under-13 tournament at Mundhwa on Wednesday.
The southpaw slammed an unbeaten 65 — a knock studded with 12 boundaries and two sixes off 39 deliveries. His two sixes went way above the compound wall and the umpire had to call for new balls.
Arjun, declared man of the match, was sloppy on the field, dropping a simple catch but the opener compensated with the bat.
Prithvi Shaw and Tendulkar added 107 for the opening wicket. It was Shaw who notched up his half-century off 25 deliveries (9x41x6) while Arjun was on 32.
Soon, junior Tendulkar got going and slammed boundaries in every corner of the ground. He crossed his half-century off 34 deliveries with the help of 10 boundaries and one six. By the time Shaw was dismissed, VengsarkarCA were out of the contest.
MIG attained the required total in just 12.3 overs. Arjun finished the match with a boundary. “He is improving by the day. But he is still a kid and it is too early to say anything about his performance. We have to work on his fielding and bowling skills,” said one of the MIG coaches, who didn’t wish to be named.
Brief scores: Cadence CA 150/5 (Hrishikesh Motkar 55, Atharva Kale 27,Siddesh Wargante 27*; Sammit Pawar 2/19) bt Chandrakant Pandit Cricket Clinic 117/9 (Aakash Panchal 28; Ishant Dubey 2/39, Anmol Arora 2/21,Vaibhav Vibhute 2/14); PCMC Varroc Vengsarkar CA 124 (Om Bhosale 25;Navyasparsh Tiwari 3/19, Atharva Ankolekar 2/16) lost to MIG Cricket Club 128/2 (Arjun Tendulkar 65*, Prithvi Shaw 55; Akshat Sharma 2/20)
