Haryana spoils Arjun Tendulkar’s debut

17 January, 2021

Arjun Tendulkar’s domestic cricket debut didn’t bring any smile as Mumbai’s winless run in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy continued for the third match in succession.

Despite Arjun, the son of legendary Sachin Tendulkar, dismissing left-handed opener Chaitanya Bishnoi in his second over, the left-arm seamer had a forgettable outing as he was clobbered for 34 runs in three overs.

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Aditya Tare gave the host a quick-fire start after Suryakumar elected to bat. However, once medium-pacer Arjun Chaprana accounted for Tare off the last ball of the fourth over, the seasoned spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Jayant Yadav took over.

The spin wizards broke the back of Mumbai’s batting, sharing five wickets for 19 runs in the next five overs to leave Mumbai reeling at 56 for six in the ninth over.

Promising Atharva Ankolekar and Sarfaraz Khan’s 48-run partnership stablised the innings before Sarfaraz and Dhawal Kulkarni propelled Mumbai to 143. (Agencies)
