The wait is finally over for Arjun Tendulkar, the son of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, as he gets a chance to showcase his skills in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. After being benched for the entire season, Arjun will feature in Mumbai Indians’ last match against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).
