More than 20 young local cricketers will get the chance to pick up pointers from Sachin Tendulkar next month.

The Indian legend will be in town on June 3 to conduct a "master class" at the Singapore Cricket Club (SCC).

The 41-year-old is coming on an invitation from the Royal Bank of Scotland.

It also brought the cricket superstar to Singapore on his last visit in 2009.

The cricket clinic is an invitation-only event extended to RBS clients and young cricketers from the SCC.

Fans and members of the public, however, can go to the Padang to try and catch a glimpse of the great batsman in action. The clinic is scheduled to start at 9am.

Tendulkar announced his retirement in November last year after a glittering 24-year career, during which he became the world's leading scorer in both Test and one-day matches.

He is also the only batsman to have scored 100 international centuries.

He was a member of the Indian team which won the 2011 World Cup - his only triumph in six World Cup appearances for India.

Tendulkar, who enjoys wild popularity across India, has been active in promoting social causes such as sanitation since his retirement.
