Vinod Kambli Sheds 'Tears Of Joy' After Arjun Tendulkar Takes His Debut U-19 Wicket

Vinod Kambli wins many hearts with his emotional message for Arjun Tendulkar on taking his Under-19 debut wicket

Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli shared a 664-run record-breaking partnership when they were just teenagers in a Harris Shield match more than 30 years ago. Tendulkar went on to become the highest run-scorer in ODI and Test cricket whereas Kambli’s career was short-lived. Today, it has been almost 5 years since Tendulkar retired and his son Arjun Tendulkar is now making his Under-19 debut.

Arjun took just 12 balls to take his first Under-19 wicket against Sri Lanka. Soon enough, the photos and videos of his maiden wicket went viral on the internet. From afar, Kambli had his eyes glued to the 18-year-old’s debut as well.

He could not hold himself back from sharing an emotional tweet —

Few years before, Kambli said that Tendulkar hadn’t helped him when he needed the most. The left-handed batsman was distraught when he was dropped from the Indian side despite outstanding statistics.
