Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar will lead Ranji Trophy champions Mumbai in the five-day Irani Trophy match against Rest of India to be held in Chennai from September 18 to 22.

Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) joint secretary Ratnakar Shetty said here Sunday that the selection committee, headed by former India skipper Dilip Vengsarkar, spoke to Sachin in Bangalore Saturday and the star batsman agreed to lead the side as it was a very important match of the new season.

“The Irani Trophy being a very crucial match before the home series against the visiting New Zealand, we wanted the best side and the best man to lead,” Shetty added. (PTI)
