"Leave Arjun Tendulkar alone..." Kapil Dev urges media when asked about Sachin's son

New Delhi: 

Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev has given a message to young cricketer Arjun Tendulkar and advised him to enjoy the game. Sachin Tendulkar’s son, Arjun was bought by Mumbai Indian for Rs 30 lakh in Indian Premier League but the 22-yeal-old did not get the chance to showcase his cricketing skills. 

Former cricketer Kapil Dev talked about Arjun and said that he should be left alone and not compared with his father. 

“Why are you talking about him? You are talking about him because he is Sachin Tendulkar’s son. Let him play his own cricket and do not compare him with Sachin. Let me tell you something about Don Bradman, his son changed his name because he could not deal with that kind of pressure. He removed the surname Bradman because everyone was expecting him to be like his father,” Kapil said on Uncut YouTube channel.

“Don’t put pressure on Arjun. He is a young boy. It is unfair. To have a Tendulkar name has its advantages and disadvantages as well. Who are we to say anything to him when Sachin has been such a big player? But I would still just like to tell him one thing Go and enjoy yourself. No need to prove anything. If you can become even 50 percent like your father, there is nothing better. When the name Tendulkar comes up, our expectations rise because Sachin was such a great. We should just let him be and we should tell him to just enjoy his cricket,” he added.

Sachin Tendulkar had earlier spoken about this issue when he accepted that the path for his son is going to be difficult but he has to work hard. 

“This is a different question. What I am thinking or what I feel is not important. The season is already over,” Tendulkar had said on his YouTube channel ‘SachInsight’.

“And my conversation with Arjun has always been that the path is going to be challenging, it is going to be difficult. You started playing cricket because you are in love with cricket, continue to do so, continue to work hard and results will follow,” he had added.
