England cricketer Danielle Wyatt has shared an Instagram story that features Mumbai Indians youngster Arjun Tendulkar. The photo, which has gone viral on social media shows Arjun, son of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, enjoying lunch at Soho, London. Wyatt, 31, a prominent part of England women's cricket team shares a wonderful friendship with Arjun and has often been spotted with the 22-year-old.
This is not the first the two have been spotted hanging out. Wyatt, who has played 93 ODIs and 124 T20Is for England has earlier shared pictures with Arjun, who used to train at the MCC Cricket Academy at the iconic Lord's cricket stadium in London. Wyatt and Arjun's friendship dates back to around 2007, when she had bowled to the then-10-year-old in the nets.
"So, I first met Sachin and Arjun at Lord's Cricket Ground. Maybe 2009 or 2010 when I was with MCC young cricketers and they were training in the nets. Literally I went to the nets and said hello and introduced myself saying I am Danni etc. Arjun would have been 10 years old back then, he was so small. There is a photo somewhere on Google. I bowled to him that day, he was very good. Since then whenever I bump into Sachin or Arjun or whenever they come to Lord's to train, I go to the nets and ask him (Arjun) to bowl the new ball to me," Wyatt has stated earlier.
"But he is getting very quick now. He always says I will bounce you and knock your head off so I don't like him bowling to me anymore. He is getting too dangerous to face (Laughs). They are a lovely family. Arjun’s mom is also lovely. Recently, I bumped into Sachin in Australia during the World Cup. It is nice to see them whenever I see them."
Wyatt is an extremely popular figure in India and has expressed her admiration towards former captain Virat Kohli. She has in the past also engaged in funny social media banters with spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
