Arjun Tendulkar's batting has impressed Yuvraj Singh so much that earlier this week, the Indian cricketer tweeted saying it reminded him of his younger days. The 31-year-old cricketer is particularly taken by the passion with which Tendulkar junior plays the sport.
Speaking to members of the press in Delhi on Friday, Yuvraj said that Arjun is closely following in the footsteps of his father. "I saw Arjun batting in the nets and was really impressed with his technique and his passion. It is clear that this passion is coming straight from his father," he said.
Yuvraj also spoke about the younger generation of Indian players and said their recent performances were impressive. "It is great to see youngsters in the Indian national team do so well. It is a great way forward for the country," he said. Hard-work however will remain the main test of all players - budding, established or even for the son of a legendary player.

A Mumbai selector was earlier quoted by a newspaper as saying that Arjun's fielding was not up to the standards expected and that he needed to work on a few aspects to come back into the reckoning.
