A new book on batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar is to be launched in Mumbai on Thursday by former cricketer Rahul Dravid.

Titled ‘Sachin: Born to Bat,’ the book is written by veteran journalist Khalid AH Ansari and edited by sports scribe Clayton Murzello.

Tendulkar on late Monday night visited Matoshree to pay condolences to the late Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray s family.

Founder of the Shiv Sena, Thackeray passed away on Saturday and was cremated at Shivaji Park in Mumbai on Sunday.

Tendulkar had earlier passed on his condolence through a social networking site where he had written.

“Really sad to hear about Balasaheb’s demise. His contribution to Maharashtra was immense. It’s a terrible loss and he will always be remembered and missed. Unfortunately I am in Ahmedabad as I would have liked to pay my last respects personally. My condolences to his family.May God rest his soul in peace.

Tendulkar returned to Mumbai on Monday night after India won the first Test against England at Ahmedabad earlier in the day.
