Sachin Tendulkar will make his first appearance on India's cricket tour of New Zealand on Friday, but it will be in a lighthearted exhibition game and not for his country.

Tendulkar will play by invitation in a Twenty20 match between former Australia and New Zealand internationals preceding India's second Twenty20 international against New Zealand at Wellington. Tendulkar's India teammate Dinesh Karthik will also play in the match which includes players such as Stephen Fleming, Kyle Mills and Andrew Jones for New Zealand and Greg Matthews, Brad Hogg and Greg Blewett for Australia.
