Arjun Tendulkar failed to open his account on his debut for India U-19 side as the left-handed batsman was caught at short-leg on a duck and had faced 11 deliveries in total.
Ironically, Arjun’s father and arguably one of the greatest batsmen ever, Sachin Tendulkar, was also dismissed for a zero on his ODI debut.
Contrary to his awful batting debut, Arjun had to wait for just 12 balls for his first wicket when he trapped Lankan opener Kamil Mishara plumb in front of the wicket on the last ball of his second over.
Meanwhile, India U-19 posted a mammoth 589 in reply to Sri Lanka U-19’s first innings score of 244.
Ayush Badoni was the star performer for India, scoring an unbeaten 185 runs. Badoni missed out on a well-deserved double hundred after he ran out of partners.
Other noteable contributions came from opener Atharwa Taide (113), captain Anuj Rawat (63) and Nehal Wadhera (82).
The Indian bowlers will now look to quickly wrap up Sri Lanka U-19.
