After Sir Don, Sachin Tendulkar not only established himself as his successor but also went on to become the greatest ever batsman to play the game.
Arjun Tendulkar has provided a number of good performances in the past year and his match-winning contributions in the Cooch Behar Trophy kept him in the limelight.
After impressing everyone with his showings in the well-known domestic tournament - Cooch Behar Trophy, the lanky all-rounder has delivered the goods on his first Australian outing at the historic Bradman Oval ground.
Now Arjun is proving he is a chip off the old block, but it is his bowling, rather than batting, that is turning heads.
Unlike Sachin, who was a batting maestro, Arjun has his eyes fixed on fast-bowling and said that he loves bowling fast since childhood.
"I used to play taekwondo, cricket football, swimming and somehow cricket kicked in and everything else took a back seat", the 18-year-old said.
Representing Cricket Club of India, Arjun grabbed four wickets and played a quick-fire knock of 48 runs off just 27 balls against Hong Kong Cricket Club in the Spirit of Cricket Global Challenge T20 tournament on Thursday.

He is a left-hand paceman who today bowled four overs at the Bradman Oval, taking four wickets.
Sachin Tendulkar may be the greatest batsman of his generation. The six-foot plus Arjun counts Australian left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc and England allrounder Ben Stokes among his role models. "It's nice to see a young lad with a lot of expectation on him come out here", Fuzes said.
Arjun Tendulkar is determined to forge his own path as a cricketer and not rely on the family name, but he said he was taking some advice from his dad.
But in a country of a billion people and where cricket is nearly a religion, it was too early to tell whether he would be in the same league as Sachin Tendulkar.
Taking the ongoing attention in his stride, Arjun Tendulkar said he was focussed on enjoying the game and running his own race.
"I just got stronger, grew taller and I loved bowling fast from my childhood".
