Lahli: Oct 26, 2013

Sachin Tendulkar on Saturday gave the quaint town of Lahili what it had been waiting for with bated breath over the past few days, as he walked out to bat, bowl and field in the area’s sole landmark destination, which is encircled by greens on all sides.

A day ahead of what many believe could be his last Ranji Trophy match for Mumbai, Tendulkar practiced at the Chaudhary Bansi Lal Stadium, venue for the defending champions’ opener against hosts Haryana.

The 40-year-old champion batsman had, earlier this month, announced that he would call it a day after playing in his landmark 200th Test, against the West Indies in Mumbai from November 14-18.

Kicking off preparations for the two-Test series against the West Indies, Tendulkar on Saturday batted at the nets, bowled for a while, besides doing some catching practice with his Mumbai teammates.

Both the teams trained in the morning preparing for the four-day match beginning on Sunday.

Tendulkar is staying in the VIP suite of the Canal Rest House that is managed by the state’s irrigation department.

Tendulkar arrived in the Haryana town on Friday evening to play the match. He drove into the town in a black-coloured BMW car.

Scores of people were awaiting the arrival of Tendulkar here. Police cordoned off the rest house and had tight security arrangements in place. The rest of the Mumbai cricket team is lodged in a hotel.

Tendulkar had trained with the Mumbai team for four days at the Wankhede Stadium.
