London: Exactly six months and 18 days after he had called time on his illustrious career, Sachin Tendulkar will once again step out in white flannels on the hallowed Lord's turf leading the MCC XI against Shane Warne-led World XI in a bi-centenary celebrations match here on Saturday.

By his own admission, the world's highest run-getter in both Tests and ODIs has been enjoying the retired life and is still to find the "centre of the bat" during the practice sessions for the past 10 days.
"I have enjoyed my time with the family. I started practising 10 days ago and it is nice to be back in the gear and hitting a few balls. I'm still trying to find the centre of the bat," a smiling Tendulkar told the mediapersons during a pre-match conference at the Lord's ahead of the match.
