MUMBAI, Sep 7: India's Arjun Azad, who scored a hundred against Pakistan U-19 team in the ongoing Asia Cup in Sri Lanka is known as Little Sachin Master in Punjab. On Saturday, the family (father Sanjeev, mother Meenu and sister Ria) was more than happy with his performance.
"My feelings are that of a proud father whose son has worked very hard over the years. But he has a long way to go. I wish his plays in the Under-19 World Cup", speaking exclusively over telephone from Punjab, he said.
"We were following the match on internet and there can't be a better moment to follow his hundred and that too against Pakistan".
The father is a Civil Engineer and runs a construction company. "I have been playing golf since last many years and my son, Arjun too started playing golf with me but then switched on to this game of cricket. My parents game me freedom to choose the profession I was interested in and so, we also have given freedom to our children".
Incidentally, Arjun's sister is also a celebrity. "She manages events and is also a model", the proud father added. Arjun's mother is not heading the HR portfolio in her husband's company but also teaches the under privileged children.
The players did have hype of playing against Pakistan and Arjun indicated this to his childhood coach, Harminder Singh Pannu.
"Yes, he did say a day before that match that we now have a match "against Pakistan", the coach revealed.
"Actually he was well prepared for this match (against Pakistan) as he scored and contributed with the match winning performance a day before (against Kuwait). I said to him that its just another match. Just go and play ball to ball cricket", the coach added.
"He is a very hard working boy. He may not have the ability of Sachin's batting but he a terrific mental strength. He has a powerful grasping power. He was a 12-year-old boy when his father brought to me for coaching. He was very short in stature at that time and I never thought of him as a cricketer but he impressed me with the answers on cricket. When I put him to bat with the bowlers of 16-years of age, he sparked". "He is a very talented boy and will succeed in future", the coach signed off.
