Arjun Tendulkar seems to be following his legendary father's footsteps. Sachin Tendulkar undertook two tours to England in 1988 and 1989 with Star Cricket Club which proved fruitful before being picked for India at a tender age of 16.
Now, Tendulkar's son is set to leave for South Africa for a 15-day cricket tour with Worli Cricket Club from November 2 to 15. Arjun will captain the 16 to 18 age group team.
The tour is organised by Avinash Kadam, owner of Worli CC. He informed mid-day yesterday: "Arjun did exceptionally well when we toured SA last year. He was the highest run-scorer. Like his father, Arjun is a keen learner and has been part of our club for the last two years."
