"Obviously 2015 World Cup will be a little different. It is going to be a lot more competitive and important. The rules having changed, and with 20 -20 changing the norm in cricket, new and innovative batting styles are coming to the fore," said Tendulkar, who has the distinction of featuring in six ICC World Cups.

Tendulkar, who bid good bye to cricket in November 2013, was part of India's World Cup-winning squad in 2011 when the Men in Blue carried the Master Blaster on their shoulders at the Wankhede Stadium.

With the Bharta Ratna awardee now missing on the field, millions of his fans will find some cheer in the fact they will get a first-hand view of the game from the legend himself.
