Mumbai:

India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar would auction a private coaching camp with the highest bidder getting a lifetime opportunity to receive tips from the master batsman, followed by a lunch with him.

The proceeds of the auction, which is a part of the 'Joy of Giving Week' - an initiative by Give India and eBay India, would go to the NGO Apnalaya.

"I will spend quality time with the person or team that bids generously. All the money is going to a good cause, and I will reciprocate by offering some serious cricketing tips, besides suitable photo opportunities and I'll end the camp with lunch together with the participants," Tendulkar said.

As part of the camp, Tendulkar will train the highest bidder on batting technique, give inputs on fitness, practice routines to follow and developing "match readiness" and also psychological training, a release said.

The 'Joy of Giving Week', involving a number celebrities including actor Saif Ali Khan and film director Imtiaz Ali, besides Tendulkar, is a new movement aiming to engage Indians in giving back something to the society they belong to.
