Nagpur:

Sachin Tendulkar's return to the team is certainly a big boost, and for the little master a comeback on a ground where his record is exceptional is a blessing in disguise. If Tendulkar can emulate his previous form in Nagpur in the coming days, India could well be back on level terms with Australia as it heads to Mumbai for the last Test. The Master Blaster has 33 Test centuries to his name already, the most recent coming in the Multan Test played against Pakistan earlier this year. And he would like nothing more than to get his 34th ton in Nagpur so that he can equal Sunil Gavaskar's record of most Test centuries. The Nagpur match venue itself is special for the 'Bombay Bomber'. He has three centuries from four matches at the ground, having scored 625 runs at an amazing average of 156.25. He also has a double century against Zimbabwe in the city of oranges. "I have a good record in Nagpur. But coming back after an injury I will have to start from scratch," he said. The fans are also keen to see Tendulkar in full flow. The news of his return has tripled ticket sales in Nagpur. And the fans would like nothing more than to see him score another double century in Nagpur to help India level the series against Australia.
