Alongside son Arjun, Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar was seen bowling at the Mumbai Indians nets at the International Cricket Council (ICC) Academy.
Though the legend's presence spread over, hundreds arrived to see him.
40 year old, Tendulkar bowled long spells to the Mumbai batsmen and so did Arjun, who looked as focused as his father.
However, the management decided to retire the shirt No.10 worn by Sachin.
"We had decided to retire the No.10 jersey worn by Sachin. He is our icon and he will inspire us from the dugout wearing it," Leeladhar Singh, the media manager in charge of the Mumbai Indians, told the Gulf News.
