Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar on Sunday congratulated his son Arjun Tendulkar on his debut in the Indian Premier League.

Arjun Tendulkar made his debut for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL on Sunday.

“Arjun, today you have taken another important step in your journey as a cricketer. As your father, someone who loves you and is passionate about the game, I know you will continue to give the game the respect it deserves and the game will love you back.

“You have worked very hard to reach here, and I am sure you will continue to do so. This is the start of a beautiful journey. All the best!,” Sachin tweeted.

Arjun found a place in the playing eleven for Mumbai's match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium.

The 23-year-old Arjun is a bowling all-rounder who bats left-handed and bowls left-arm medium pace.

A former Mumbai under-19 player, Arjun made his first class debut in December last year for Goa.

In even first class matches, he scored 223 runs with one century and took 12 wickets for Goa.

On Sunday, he opened the bowling for Mumbai Indians against the Knight Riders after the home team opted to field.

Sachin, Arjun's father, played 78 matches for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, scoring 2334 runs with one century.
