Sachin Tendulkar and skipper Harbhajan Singh will be under the spotlight as Mumbai Indians take on South Africa's Lions in their Champions League T20 opener here on Sunday.

Tendulkar, who didn’t play the World Twenty20 held in Sri Lanka, played his last competitive game against New Zealand in the second Test in Bangalore earlier last month.

The master blaster, who earned wrath from the critics for being bowled thrice during the two-Test series against New Zealand, will look forward to answer his critics during the T20 competition.

For Harbhajan, it would be an apt opportunity to show that he still has fire in his belly. It may be recalled, Harbhajan got the Man of the Match award against India’s World T20 fixture against England.

Mumbai Indians also have Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Ambati Rayudu and others who are capable of winning matches on their days.
