The game of cricket witnessed several father-son duo who went on to represent their country, such as the Pollocks, the Binnies, the Gavaskars, and the Amarnaths. Another lineage due to be added to the list is the Tendulkars.


Former Indian international S Sreesanth recently engaged in a conversation with legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar where he talked about Arjun Tendulkar’s chances to feature in the Indian team.

Arjun, having already broken into the Mumbai squad in the U14, U16 and U19 levels, is earmarked to be the next big thing in Indian cricket.


Junior Tendulkar hogged all the limelight while bowling to the England cricket team during nets where his yorkers even troubled the likes of Ben Stokes.

However, due to age issues, Arjun was unfortunate to miss the trip to South Africa for the recent U19 World Cup.

Two-time World Cup winner, Sreesanth, through his tweet, went on to praise Arjun’s bowling action and hoped that he would don the national colours ‘surely’.


“Thanks a lot Sachin Paaji..u made my day, great to hear from you..love and warm regds to all at home..nd great to c Arjun doing well ..he is got a brilliant action nd great rhythm..he will surly play for India,” tweeted Sreesanth.

Sreesanth, along with two other Rajasthan Royals players, tainted the Indian Premier League (IPL) with spot-fixing allegations. As a result, Sree was handed a life-ban by the BCCI.

Moreover, it took years for Sree to get his ban lifted from BCCI. The 36-year old, at the twilight of his career, still hopes to make his comeback into the national team.


Sree was part of India’s World Cup wins in 2007 and 2011. Also, he held a skier from Misbah-ul-Haq, placed at short-fine leg, which helped India clinch the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup.
