Tendulkar is batting well: Wright

Ahmedabad, Sep 20: Mumbai Indians coach John Wright and his team are planning to make it a "special" Champions League Twenty20 tournament for the retiring Sachin Tendulkar.


Tendulkar will be quitting the T20 format after the CLT20. He has already left the Indian Premier League scene. During this year's IPL in May, after Mumbai Indians won the title, the Master Blaster announced his retirement.

Mumbai Indians face Rahul Dravid-led Rajasthan Royals tomorrow in their opening match in Jaipur.

"Everyone knows that he (Sachin Tendulkar) will be playing for the last time in this format, so we will try and do something special for him," Wright was quoted as saying the CLT20's official website.

Wright, who had been India's coach and worked with Tendulkar, said the 40-year-old is still in love with the game and he has not changed the way he approaches the game.

"Sachin has never changed in the way that he approaches the game. He loves the game. He knows about himself and how he plays, and he prepares accordingly," the New Zealander said.

Wright informed that Tendulkar was batting well in the camp in Ahmedabad and his is "fresh and keen".

"We have been Ahmedabad for a four-day camp and it was a pleasure for all of us to work with him. I am pleased to report that he is batting well and he is keen and fresh.

"The boys love playing with Sachin, he is big part of our franchise and it will be great to see him at the wicket again. The thing about Sachin I think is he has kept it very simple, he knows his game inside out and he works hard on his preparation that has never changed."
