Tendulkar joins MI camp
Little Master plays practice game at Wankhede
The Little Master practiced for about half-an-hour in the nets before a practice match. Most of the bowlers in the team and a few net bowlers bowled to him. Munaf Patel, Pragyan Ojha, RP Singh were among those who had a bowl at Tendulkar. Shaun Pollock and Robin Singh watched as the right-hand batsman got into the groove.
The Mumbai Indians played their third practice game, ahead of their first IPL 2012 match in Chennai. This was their second practice match under lights at the Wankhede Stadium.
MI owner Mukesh Ambani also visited the team’s practice today. Meanwhile, his wife Nita and Tendulkar’s wife Anjali were watching from the sidelines when the MI skipper came out to open in the second innings of the practice game.
However, Sachin Tendulkar got out early in the innings much to the dismay of the onlookers. He was caught at square-leg by Dhawal Kulkarni off Pragyan Ojha as he attempted to scoop the left-arm spinner. He scored three runs.
