Defending champion Mumbai Indians has had to its IPL campaign — three nail-biting losses in as many outings — it wasn’t surprising to see former captain Sachin Tendulkar, who is a mentor now, quite involved during the team’s training on Monday, the eve of its high-voltage clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
