Sachin Tendulkar to bat at number four, says Ajit Agarkar

Mumbai skipper Ajit Agarkar on Saturday said veteran batsman Sachin Tendulkar, who recently retired from ODIs, will bat at number four in the Ranji Trophy quarter-final clash against Baroda.

“We have got Sachin back, which is great. Someone like him showing keenness to play, it obviously helps. That experience in the dressing room will always help,” Agarkar told reporters here.

Asked if Tendulkar will play at number five, the position where he played his last Ranji match against Railways and scored 137, Agarkar replied in the negative and said he would bat a bit higher up the order.

“He was sick that day, that is why he batted at five that day. Sachin will bat at four,” he said.

Baroda captain Yusuf Pathan said, his side will learn a lot from the experienced batsman during the five-day match.Read more
