All eyes will be on Sachin Tendulkar and skipper Harbhajan Singh as defending champions Mumbai Indians take on local team Lions in their opening Champions League Twenty20 here on Sunday.

Tendulkar, whose last competitive game was a Test match between India and New Zealand in Bangalore earlier last month, will be keen on doing well as his performance will certainly have a bearing on Mumbai Indians' fortune in the tournament.

For the 39-year-old batsman, it will also be a chance to prove his detractors wrong after he was bowled thrice during the Tests against New Zealand while Harbhajan will like to use this chanve to get confidence and make a case for himself before the Test team selection.

Chennai face Sydney

Featuring players who shone at the World T20, Sydney Sixers might prove to be quite a handful for the Chennai Super Kings when the two teams clash in their opening Group B encounter of the Champions League T20, here tomorrow.

Sixers have quite an ace up their sleeve in all-rounder Shane Watson, the man who was destructive with the bat and incisive with the ball in the World T20.
