Skipper Sachin Tendulkar on Saturday formally joined Mumbai Indians' conditioning camp for the upcoming Indian Premier League campaign at their home ground, Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.

The batsman was busy playing for the country in Australia and then in the Asia Cup in Bangladesh when the camp began and, after India's early exit from the Dhaka four-nation tournament, went to London on a brief visit for medical consultation about his injured toe.

Tendulkar, who achieved the unprecedented landmark of scoring 100 international hundreds, during the Asia Cup, will be spearheading MI's bid to clinch the crown for the first time in the cash-rich T20 event, commencing on April 4.

Mumbai Indian's campaign opener is scheduled against last year's winners Chennai Super Kings, to be led by India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, at the M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The preparatory camp is set to conclude on Saturday.

The Mumbai Indians squad and the support staff - including mentor cum bowling coach Shaun Pollock, advisor cum fielding coach Jonty Rhodes, head coach Robin Singh, assistant coach Paras Mhambrey and spin bowling coach Maninder Singh - are set to leave for Chennai on Sunday.
