Lord's is a dream come true for any youngster who aspires to make it big in the gentlemen's game. Bowling at the nets before the first Test between England and South Africa at Lord's, young Arjun gave an injury scare to wicket-keeper/batsman Jonny Bairstow.
"The 27-year-old was pinned on the foot by a yorker from the teenage son of Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar". Sad for Bairstow, though, He couldn't get some much-needed practice and had to leave the nets after facing just one ball.
Bairstow's left foot was briefly placed in a compression unit to ease the pain during the training session at Lord's on Wednesday morning. And, Bairstow's participation in the first Test wasn't getting affected.
Indian cricket fans are waiting to see Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun Tendulkar in India colours.
Meanwhile, just days before the first Test, Bairstow said it will be a proud day for his Yorkshire teammate Joe Root when he will walk on the field as the England captain. Notably, in 2015, the then-15-year-old had trained with the English cricket team ahead of the second Ashes Test against Australia as his father reportedly owns an apartment near the Lord's cricket ground in London and used to regularly visit the MCC Academy. He has also made appearances for the Mumbai U-14 and U-16 teams. Arjun Tendulkar is a fast-bowling all-rounder and he bowls at a very good speed considering his age. South Africa's tour of England so far has been unimpressive, having lost the limited-overs legs and failing to reach the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy.
