Mumbai, in a record 44th final in India's premier domestic tournament, will be favourites at their home ground to win the trophy. The final starts on January 26.

Tendulkar will be playing his fourth match of the season. He had turned out for Mumbai in their opening match against Railways, then quarter-finals against Baroda and semi-finals versus Services last week. He has scored two centuries this season.

The 39-year-old has a great record at Wankhede Stadium in Ranji Trophy finals. He has scored three hundreds at the venue.

In five previous finals' appearances, Tendulkar won four titles and fell two runs short of the fifth when Mumbai lost to Haryana in 1991.

This will be Tendulkar's first Ranji Trophy final since 2009.
