New Delhi: Mar 22, 2013
 
Sachin Tendulkar’s elder brother Ajit Tendulkar on Friday dropped in at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground to watch the first day’s play between India and Australia.
 
According to sources close to the cricketer, Ajit is expected to stay back for the entire duration of the final Test, with India standing on the cusp of a historic 4-0 clean sweep.
 
Ajit, who has been a friend, philosopher and guide of the legendary cricketer, as usual kept a very low profile and quietly left the stadium after watching first day’s proceedings.
 
Ajit played a pivotal role in shaping up the career of the cricketer.
 
Tendulkar, who will turn 40 in a month’s time, is playing his 198th Test match of his illustrious career.
 
This is the last Test match that India play at home in the next 15 months. India‘s next Test assignment is in South Africa in December-January while they go to New Zealand in February.
