New Delhi:

Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and Zaheer Khan don't want any of the debacle that India had to face in England and perhaps that is the reason they want to play some Ranji matches to prepare for Alastair Cook & Co, who will visit India for a full-fledged series later this month.

Ravi Savant, Mumbai Cricket Association chief, said Sachin and Zaheer are available to play in Mumbai's Ranji Trophy opener against Railways from November 2-5, before the home Test series against England.

"Yes, both Sachin and Zaheer are available for the game. Our secretary (Nitin Dalal) is following it up," he said.
