We have seen Sachin Tendulkar the player celebrating now it’s Sachin Tendulkar the father celebrating – Prayan Ojha
Pacer Arjun Tendulkar claimed his first IPL wicket, by dismissing Bhuvneshwar Kumar as SRH were bowled out for 178 in 19.5 overs while Tendulkar’s wicket will be a reason for joy in the famed Tendulkar household, with former India cricketer Prayan Ojha on JioCinema how pleased Sachin Tendulkar must be with his son Arjun’s bowling.
Mumbai Indians defeated the Sunrisers Hyderabad by a score of 14 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi stadium in IPL 2023 on Tuesday. With Cameron Green scoring 64 runs off 40 deliveries (6×4, 2×6) and excellent performances from Tilak Varma (37 runs; 17 b, 2×4, 4×6) and Ishan Kishan (38 runs, 31 b, 3×4, 2×6), MI put up a challenging 192/5 in their opening innings.
Mayank Agarwal, the opener, led SRH’s chase with 48 runs (41b, 4×4, 1×6), but frequent wicket losses ultimately pushed the hosts back. However, pacer Arjun Tendulkar claimed his first IPL wicket, by dismissing Bhuvneshwar Kumar as SRH were bowled out for 178 in 19.5 overs.
Tendulkar’s wicket will be a reason for joy in the famed Tendulkar household, with former India cricketer Prayan Ojha on JioCinema how pleased Sachin Tendulkar must be with his son Arjun’s bowling.
“We have seen Sachin Tendulkar the player celebrating. Now it’s Sachin Tendulkar the father celebrating. This was a very important over to boost his self-confidence. Everyone says they saw him bowl yorkers, or as Zak Bhai said, he swung the ball but executing the way he did in his second-ever match, it’s not easy. Even though he did bowl to Bhuvneshwar Kumar, I think he showed tremendous confidence.”
Green, meanwhile, was awarded the Player of the Match. Parthiv Patel complimented the Aussie for living up to high expectations,
“Everyone knows what kind of player he is and today he put power behind his shots and played all over the field. If they bowled outside the off stump, he was reaching and hitting it. If it was coming straight, we got to see more shots. When the short ball came, we saw his pull shots. The way people talk about the level of player Cameron Green is, today’s performance let everyone know who he is. How much further he can rise from here and show consistency is going to be very important.”
Mumbai picked up their third consecutive win after a 0-2 start to the season. Patel spoke about the momentum MI is hoping to build.
“If one team wins a game or two, they hope to stretch that momentum as much as possible. There will be a phase where they lose a game or two, so if you’re playing well, you’re going to keep trying to win as many games as possible.”
