Mumbai: Some of his recent troubles on the pitch have been blamed on a lack of match practice. And after Sachin Tendulkar recently called time on his oneday career, it was clear he had to play first-class cricket to stay sharp for Tests.
Tendulkar, who scored a Ranji ton first up this season on returning to the Mumbai fold, will be back in action for the quarterfinal tie at home against Baroda, from January 6 to 10.
“Sachin will be playing against Baroda. He has confirmed his availability for the match,” Mumbai Cricket Association joint secretary, Nitin Dalal said on Tuesday. Dalal, the selection committee convenor, said the team will be picked on Thursday.
Although Tendulkar could have played in the last league tie against Gujarat, which ended in a draw on Tuesday, he was definitely expected to come in once Mumbai sealed the knockout berth.
