Yuvraj Singh posted a throwback picture with his former India teammate Sachin Tendulkar‘s son Arjun with a quirky caption: “Junior Tendulkar learning from the best.” In the picture, Arjun, who has bowled in the nets to many international teams in the past, is seen with Yuvraj and both players are in their practice kits. Yuvraj is also seen wielding a bat and the picture looks to be from Yuvraj’s India days. Arjun, who recently turned 21, has played U-19 cricket for India, breaking into the squad for the first time in 2018.
Yuvraj, who retired from all cricket in 2019, has been active on social media and has posted such pictures from his playing days before as well.
Yuvraj finished a nearly 17-year-long international career with 8701 runs from 204 One-day Internationals, 1900 runs from 40 Tests and 1177 runs from 58 Twenty20 Internationals.
Yuvraj played with Arjun’s father, Sachin, from 2000, when Yuvraj debuted for India, to Sachin’s retirement in 2013.
Sachin Tendulkar finished an illustrious 25-year career as the highest scorer in Tests and ODIs.
He scored 15921 runs from 200 Tests and 18426 runs from 463 ODIs. He hit a world record 100 international hundreds while scoring the most centuries in Tests (51) and ODIs (49).
Both Yuvraj and Sachin played in the 2003 Men’s World Cup, where India lost to Australia in the final, and the 2011 World Cup at home where India won their second World Cup title.
Sachin Tendulkar is one of the mentors of Mumbai Indians, the defending Indian Premier League champions who will aim to win their fifth title when they take on Delhi Capitals on November 10.
