New Delhi:

Sachin Tendulkar's elder brother Ajit Tendulkar dropped in at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground on Friday to watch the first day's play between India and Australia, here.

According to sources close to the cricketer, Ajit is expected to stay back for the entire duration of the final Test, with India standing on the cusp of a historic 4-0 clean sweep.

Ajit, who has been a friend, philosopher and guide of the legendary cricketer, as usual kept a very low profile and quietly left the stadium after watching first day's proceedings.

Ajit played a pivotal role in shaping up the career of the cricketer.
