Sachin to play Ranji Trophy quarters

Mumbai, Jan 2: Sachin Tendulkar is set to play Ranji Trophy for Mumbai again this season. After having played the team's opening match against Railways, the Master Blaster will turn up in quarter-finals against Baroda from January 6.

On Tuesday, Mumbai made it to the knockout stages by drawing their final league game against Madhya Pradesh. Tendulkar had opted out of this game and had made his intentions clear that he would play in the quarter-finals, if Mumbai qualify.

Tendulkar had scored a century against Railways this season and the quarter-finals will be at the same venue, Wankhede Stadium.

"He (Sachin Tendulkar) told me today that he would be available for the game," Mumbai Cricket Association secretary Nitin Dalal was quoted as saying by "The Times of India" on Tuesday.

Tendulkar, who announced his retirement on December 23, from One Day Internationals, will be playing his first game after the England Test series. He did not have a good run with the bat and there were calls for his retirement from Test arena.

Now that Tendulkar will pad up for Ranji Trophy again, he will have a chance to rediscover his old touch ahead of Australia Test series which starts next month.
