Tendulkar gears up!

The Mumbai Indians players were buoyed by the presence of Sachin Tendulkar, who joined the team’s training session here on Tuesday as the high-profile franchise starts its title defence against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 7 on Wednesday.

MI players were overjoyed as Tendulkar, who reached here late on Monday night, came in the team’s practise outfit in Abu Dhabi.
 
Having retired from all forms of the game after the Test series against West Indies ended on November 16 last year, Tendulkar seemed to be itching to have a hit in the nets.
 
He has already been named as an “MI Icon” recently and will also do his bit to promote the franchise’s cause of “Education for All”.
 
The legend padded up and had a half-an hour session at the nets during which he was a picture of concentration. He also did his customary throwdowns from a member of the support staff.
