Before he bids goodbye to international cricket in the second Test versus the West Indies between November 14-18, Sachin Tendulkar will play one final time for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy. He will play his last domestic match against Haryana at Lahli from October 27 under the captaincy of Zaheer Khan. Mumbai are the defending champions. The Master Blaster has started training for the tie at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.

Tendulkar, who will retire at the end of the two-Test series against West Indies in November, will get an opportunity to spend some time at the crease going into the Test series. Zaheer, on the other hand, will be keen to put in an impressive performance and stake a claim for a Test comeback.

Zaheer, however, was named captain only for the Haryana game, with Rohit Sharma being given the leadership for the season. Rohit had led Mumbai during regular captain Ajit Agarkar's absences in the previous season. (Related: Agarkar retires from cricket)
