Dinesh Karthik Delivers A No-Nonsense Verdict On Arjun Tendulkar’s Future In Cricket. Dinesh Karthik, the 37-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman for the India National Cricket Team, praised 23-year-old fast bowling all-rounder Arjun Tendulkar for hitting a century on his Ranji Trophy debut.
The opening Ranji Trophy 2022–23 match between Goa and Rajasthan included 120 runs off 207 balls by Arjun Tendulkar, son of “The God of Cricket” Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Notably, Arjun imitated his father Sachin, who had scored his first-ever first-class century against Gujarat in 1988 while making his Ranji Trophy debut for Mumbai.

Karthik lauded Arjun for making significant strides in the batting department in a statement to Cricbuzz.
“I have seen Arjun quite a bit you know. He is more of a left-arm medium pacer who can bat a bit, but he definitely had credentials with the bat. You could see that he can hit a ball, but getting a hundred I think is quite special. Kudos to him, many more to the team, we generally don’t associate Arjun Tendulkar with the bat but it is good knowing that he has worked hard on his batting,” Karthik said.

Notably, at the beginning of the season, Arjun, then 23 years old, relocated from Mumbai to Goa in pursuit of better possibilities. He had only appeared in two T20 games for Mumbai prior to the current season.

Karthik, a seasoned wicketkeeper and hitter, praised Arjun for taking a “huge chance” by relocating from Mumbai to Goa in pursuit of greater playing time.
“I have seen him in England when he used to practice with the younger boys there, he had the potential to obviously do well. Credit to him, moving states, taking that big gamble and then taking in the opportunity with both hands,” Karthik added.
