Sachin Tendulkar is the captain of Mumbai Indians team in Indian Premier League (IPL). The team depends a lot on Sachin Tendulkar to provide a solid and sound opening to the innings. The below list shows the runs scored by Sachin Tendulkar in each match of IPL 2009:

1. vs Chennai Super Kings: 59 not out (49 balls)
2. vs Rajasthan Royals: Match abandoned
3. vs Deccan Chargers: 36 (27 balls)
4. vs Kolkata Knight Riders: 68 (45 balls)
5. vs Kings XI Punjab:01 (06 balls)
6. vs Kolkata Knight Riders:34 (30 balls)
7. vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: 11 (11 balls)
8. vs Deccan Chargers:02 (04 balls)
9. vs Delhi Daredevils: 15 (14 balls)
10. vs Royal Challengers Bangalore:00 (03 balls)

12. vs Rajasthan Royals:40 (30 balls)
13. vs Chennai Super Kings:11 (14 balls)
14. vs Delhi Daredevils:46 (41 balls)

Currently (after 11 matches), he is the second highest scorer for Mumbai Indians, just behind South African sensation JP Duminy.

Sachin Tendulkar has overtaken JP Duminy to be the highest scorer for Mumbai Indians, with 307 runs (after 12 matches)

Final Update
Sachin Tendulkar finished with 364 runs, the second highest run scorer for Mumbai Indians, just behind JP Duminy's tally of 372 runs. Sachin's runs came at an average of 33.09 at a strike rate of 120.13.

Sachin would be very disappointed with the overall performance of Mumbai Indians, the team that promised too much at the beginning but disappeared near the end. Mumbai Indians, finishing seventh in the table, once again failed to make it to the semi-finals of IPL. The other team below Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, is the only other team that has failed to reach semi-finals stage in either of the two editions of IPL.
