Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun, who grabbed the limelight after a tidy spell on his India U-19 debut, failed to get off the mark during the first youth Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo.

Arjun faced 11 deliveries before being dismissed by Shashika Dulshan.

The 18-year-old had claimed his first international wicket on Tuesday, dismissing Kamil Mishara -- trapping the left-handed batsman leg before for nine runs.

Mishara had hit Arjun, a left-arm pacer, for two fours but the youngster had his revenge in his second over. He returned figures of 11-2-33-1.

After bowling out Sri Lanka U-19 for 244, India rode centuries from Ayush Badoni (185*) and opener Atharwa Taide (113) to post 589, taking a first-innings lead of 345 runs. In reply, the hosts were 177/3 in their second innings at stumps on day three.

Arjun Tendulkar was part of Mumbai’s U-19 squad in the Cooch Behar Trophy last season where he picked up two five-wicket hauls.

He returned with 18 wickets overall at an average of 25.22. Both his five-fors included the scalps of the opposition’s top four batsmen.

A handy lower-order batsman, Arjun’s all-round ability also caught the eye during Cricket Club of India’s tour to Australia last year, where his presence in the tournament attracted media attention.
