For the first time in IPL history! Arjun Tendulkar Sets a New Record With Father Sachin

Due to a stomach ailment, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma was unable to play in the Indian Premier League 2023 match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday. Suryakumar Yadav, his deputy, wore the captain’s hat during the match. While Rohit’s absence allowed Surya to take over as captain, it also allowed uncapped Indian all-rounder Arjun Tendulkar to make his IPL debut, two years after he was first signed by the team in the 2021 auction.

Arjun first joined the Mumbai Indians, his father’s only IPL franchise before retiring, ahead of the league’s 2021 season. However, Arjun was unable to make his debut during his two years with the team.

Arjun finally got his chance to make his debut against the Knight Riders in 2023, joining the MI players in the playing XI for the first time. Arjun established a new milestone in the process, becoming the first father-son combo to play for the same franchise in IPL history.

“Father and son playing for the same team ten years later.” A first in IPL history. “Best wishes, Arjun Tendulkar,” former India cricketer Irfan Pathan said on the occasion.

Mumbai Indians earned a significant boost from their recent victory over the Delhi Capitals. In contrast, Kolkata Knight Riders enter this match after a 23-run loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match.

“Would love to bowl first, the wicket looks dry,” Suryakumar stated at the toss. Later, the ball comes onto the bat perfectly. Rohit is absent due to a stomach virus. It’s time to put on a fantastic performance. We’ll make one change: Duan Jansen will replace him. Everything else will remain the same.”
