Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun, who is currently in London, caught the attention of fans on social media when he opted to take a power nap in the middle of the second Test between India and England at Lord’s.

Arjun, who bowled to the Indian cricket team in the nets ahead of the beginning of the second Test at Lord’s, was spotted napping, lying just outside the boundary line behind the advertising boards.

One social media user compared him to MS Dhoni, who had famously chosen to take a power nap during the third ODI between India and Sri Lanka at Pallekele last year when fan misbehaviour forced the match to stop for a bit.

Arjun Tendulkar was also seen outside of Lord’s yesterday selling digital radios, something that earned him a bit of praise from former India spinner Harbhajan Singh.

Meanwhile, it’s safe to say that Virat Kohli and co. will be having a sleepless night after the way Day 3 ended. A century from Chris Woakes powered England to 357/6 when play was called off due to bad light.

With the visitors trailing by 250 runs already, even saving the Test match looks an uphill task at this point - despite the threat of rain looming over the final day.

England lead the series 1-0 after winning the first Test at Edgbaston by 31 runs.
