Arjun, Sachin Tendulkar’s son, slammed the first century of his career in the Mumbai Cricket Association’s Under-14 selection trials held at the Cross Maidan in Mumbai on Saturday.
The 12-year old made 124 to help Khar Gymkhana beat Goregaon Centre by an innings and 21 runs and enter the final of the tournament. He hit 14 boundaries and a six during his knock.
Arjun, who is a left hander unlike his father, had scored 64 runs in his previous match during this MCA summer vacation tournament that also serves as selection trials to the U-14 team.
Arjun made his debut at the national level in January last year in the Cadence Trophy in Pune. He has been in news since then. In the same tournament this year, he made 65 off 39 balls against PCMC Varroc Vengsarkar CA.
Arjun, who also bowls left-arm pace, impressed everyone with his bowling prowess when he finished with figures of eight for 22 that helped Dhirubhai Ambani International School beat Jamnabai Narsee School in November 2011.
