Mirpur: Still chasing his 100th international century, Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday had a net session for over an hour ahead of India`s Asia Cup match against Bangladesh here on Friday.

Tendulkar faced spinners Yusuf Pathan and Rahul Sharma, besides some medium-pace bowling from new bowling coach Joe Dawes, at the nets.

Tendulkar also received throwdowns from fielding coach Trevor Penney even as coach Duncan Fletcher kept a close eye on the batsman.

After the session, Tendulkar had a long conversation with the coach.

It did not end with the batting practice as Tendulkar was also seen bowling leg spinners to Rahul, who was also beaten neck and crop on one occasion, much to the surprise of the 38-year-old.

He then offered some batting tips to the young leggie.
