Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders are currently playing a game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The big news is that Rohit Sharma will miss the game due to a stomach bug and it will be Suryakumar Yadav who will lead the squad in his absence. The other news is that Arjun Tendulkar will make his IPL debut. On that note, here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Arjun Tendulkar makes his debut in IPL.
An important game for Mumbai Indians
Meanwhile, having won a game in the previous encounter, it is high time that MI continues the momentum. If they can stitch a few more victories, they will surely be in the reckoning for the playoffs.
Yes, against KKR’s spin attack, it will be a tough task but MI has the resources to do well. They have two brilliant players of spin in the form of SKY and Tilak Varma. If they can deliver today, the others might also do well.
Twitter reacts as Arjun Tendulkar makes his debut in IPL
It has been a while since Arjun Tendulkar has waited for his debut in the Indian Premier League. It was a few seasons ago that the youngster was picked up by Mumbai Indians. As soon as he got a chance, there was already pressure on him. Last year, despite so many injuries in the camp, Arjun did not get a single game. That said, after the last season, Arjun has made some important moves in his career. He made the move to Goa and ensured himself some consistent games. He did get some matches and also showcased his skills, both with the bat and the ball. With the likes of Arshad Khan not stepping up till now, it will be a good opportunity for Arjun to do well for Mumbai Indians, a franchise which his father also represented. Here are some reactions in this regard:
Rohit Sharma refused to captain Arjun Tendulkar in his debut game. WOW

Father and Son turning out for the same franchise 10 years on. A historic first in the IPL. Good luck Arjun Tendulkar.
