However, this Boy Wonder rued missing 500 by just 2 runs. "I feel bad that I could not get 2 runs and complete 500 runs, but 498 is also a good score and I am happy that I managed to score that," Arman said.
He also said that master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was his idol and he admired his determination. "I admire the way he is determined to give his best and his focus while batting," he added.
Incidentally Arman is Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer's nephew.
