Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar may not be playing in IPL7, but master blaster has been named as ICON of his former IPL team Mumbai Indians.

“Sachin has been an integral part of Mumbai Indians and a source of inspiration for the team ever since the inception. It was a fitting finale to Sachin last season, when we dedicated the IPL as well as CLT20 trophies as tribute to the legend,” said Mrs Nita M. Ambani, adding, “We are very happy to recognize him as the Mumbai Indians ICON. I am sure the youngsters in the team will be delighted to have him around for guidance, and so would be the Mumbai Indians fans.”

Sachin said he will be delighted to continue his association with Mumbai Indians, as he has been part of the team since the inaugural edition. Sachin has also expressed his keen desire to be a part of the Mumbai Indians ‘Education For All’ initiative. Led by Mrs Nita M. Ambani
