Arjun Tendulkar Sends Jonny Bairstow Packing at Lord's

London: England batsman Jonny Bairstow was taken aback when a yorker from Arjun Tendulkar hit him on the foot. While Bairstow walked out of the nets after facing the delivery from Sachin Tendulkar’s son, Bairstow is set to take part in the first Test of the series against South Africa starting Thursday.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, the 27-year-old was pinned on the foot by a yorker from Arjun and hobbled out of the nets. Bairstow's left foot was placed briefly in a compression unit to ease the pain during the session at Lord's on Wednesday morning.

Earlier, Arjun was seen training next to the South African team during the Champions Trophy as they had an optional training session at the Lord’s. Arjun was busy going through the grind just as the other kids in the country. With the summer holidays on, the family was in London.

Tendulkar goes to London for around a month-and-a-half every summer to spend some quality time with his family as he has a home in St John's Wood, the prosperous neighborhood near Lord's. And his son Arjun, who is primarily a bowler, uses the opportunity to also work on his cricketing skills during the academic break.
