“We had a practice session in Lahore and before we began Inzi brought his son to me & said ‘He’s a big fan and wants to meet you’. With the rivalry we had and Inzi was Pakistan captain, to say something like this to a player from the other team takes a lot,” Tendulkar explained during the show.Both Sachin and Inzamam were titans for their country during their playing days with the former going on to register over 33,000 runs in international cricket, while the latter himself garnered over 20,000 during his illustrious career.
While Inzamam’s son remains a big fan of Tendulkar, the Mumbai-born maestro’s son has followed in the footsteps of his famous father by taking up the game professionally. Arjun Tendulkar was recently selected for the India U19 squad which will tour Sri Lanka in July.
