Watch: A Tendulkar Hits A Six In Indian Premier League Again. Sachin Would Be Proud
Mumbai Indians (MI) all-rounder Arjun Tendulkar bounced again from a costly outing towards Punjab Kings with a strong efficiency towards the Gujarat Titans on Tuesday. Arjun, who conceded 48 runs and picked up only one wicket in three overs towards PBKS, struck within the powerplay as soon as once more, dismissing GT opener Wriddhiman Saha. Despite conceding simply 9 runs in his two overs within the powerplay, Arjun did not get the possibility to bowl out his remaining overs.
However, Arjun was seen in a brand new avatar after he acquired an opportunity to bat for MI, following their top-order collapse.
The 23-year-old immediately despatched the followers into overdrive with a nonchalant six off Mohit Sharma’s supply within the final over of the match.
The bowler banged it shot and Arjun pulled it over deep sq. leg for a six.

However, Sharma had the final snicker over Arjun as he dismissed the teenager on the fourth supply of the final over.
Mumbai Indians head coach Mark Boucher backed Arjun Tendulkar, who went for 31 runs within the fifteenth over of PBKS’ innings. Arjun was the most costly MI bowler, conceding 48 runs in three overs at an financial system of 16.
“I think Rohit, who is a very experienced cricketer, felt that he would bowl Arjun at the 14th-15th over. That was a better match-up at that stage in the game. Sometimes, they (decisions) go your way and sometimes they do not. Unfortunately, it did not go his way, and, in hindsight, sometimes the match-ups do not work and that is just the nature of T20 cricket,” he mentioned.
“It will be tough on him (Arjun), coming in to bowl at the back end at Wankhede where the conditions were good to bat on. He, maybe, got one or two (deliveries) wrong, he probably felt under the pressure but he will live and learn from it. It is not the end of the world; it is still not the early days but mid days in the IPL and, hopefully, he will come back stronger. He has full support of the support staff and players to try and get over this as quickly as possible,” Boucher added.
