Watch: Rohit Sharma's priceless gesture for Arjun Tendulkar after his maiden IPL wicket

Arjun Tendulkar‘s performance in his team’s triumph over Sunrisers Hyderbad was praised by Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma, who said the medium pacer bowls with clarity of thought. Tendulkar, who was playing his second IPL match, delivered under pressure as he held off 20 runs in the last over to give MI a 14-run victory over Sunrisers. A tight final over was bowled by the medium pacer, who went full and wide. In the process, he also snapped his first wicket.

Playing with Arjun is a lot of fun. Life has gone full circle’, Rohit said during the award ceremony. Rohit and his father, the renowned Sachin Tendulkar, shared the dressing room for the Indian and MI teams.

“This team has included Arjun for three years. He is aware of his intentions. He also exudes a lot of confidence. His plans are transparent. At the end, he is attempting to bowl yorkers while swinging the new ball.

Rohit commented on his own batting, saying: “It’s a different job. I’m aiming to establish the tempo. I’m happy to report several powerplay goals. I am aware that one of us must swing hard. He lavished admiration on Tilak Varma, another young player who contributed to MI with another important inning.

“Our lineup features a lot of hitters. These players should be free to enter the field and bat. We viewed Tilak’s prior season. Everyone is aware of his abilities. I adore his strategy. He plays the ball instead of the bowler. He will play for numerous teams, as will we.

Tendulkar who is just 23 years old concluded with a score of 1/18 in 2.5 overs and said he focused on his release and length.
