Inheriting a legacy

ESPNcricinfo staff

In Open, Rohan Gavaskar talks about life as Sunil Gavaskar's son and imparts advice to Arjun Tendulkar on handling the expectations that come with a legendary surname.

"I would say that just be the best you can be (irrespective of what your father achieved). Put in the hard work. From what I've seen, he doesn't shy away from [hard work]. You can see his enthusiasm for the game, so that's a plus. Look, you've got to do more than what the other guy is doing. And it applies to everybody, not just him. See, when he's out there on those 22 yards, the ball doesn't become slower or faster or turn more or turn less just because his last name is Tendulkar."
