Almost every cricket fan knows the career statistics of Sachin Tendulkar by heart. Though Sachin had a good start to his Test career, scoring 15 runs in his first Test innings; his ODI career started with a duck against Pakistan in 1989 in Gujranwala.

Now, his son Arjun, who recently made his India U19 debut against Sri Lanka U19 in a four-day match, has emulated his father. During the first Youth Test match against the Sri Lankan U-19 team at the Nondescripts Cricket Club in Colombo, Arjun Tendulkar went back to the pavilion without opening his account on his debut after playing 11 balls.

Arjun Tendulkar had a better outing with the ball, picking his first wicket for India U19 in just 12 balls. Arjun, a left-arm pacer, bowled an in-swinging length delivery and the left-handed Mishara failed to read the line of the ball and departed for a paltry 9.

After bowling out Sri Lanka U-19 team for 244, India U-19 team led by Anuj Rawat piled 589 runs on the scoreboard. Opener Atharwa Taide scored 113 off 160 balls, while Ayush Badoni smashed an unbeaten 185 off 205 balls for India.
