Bangalore, Feb 3: Sachin Tendulkar has returned as Mumbai Indians captain for the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 6), according to reports on Saturday night (February 2).
Tendulkar, who gave up captaincy of the Mumbai franchise after IPL 4 in 2011, will lead the side in place of Harbhajan Singh, who recently relinquished the leadership role.
There were speculations that Rohit Sharma would take over from Harbhajan. But Tendulkar, who will turn 40 during IPL 6 in April, has been given the job.

Tendulkar retired from One Day Internationals in December 2012.
IPL 6 will get under way on April 3.
