Mumbai Indians skipper Sachin Tendulkar is hoping to be fit for the Indian Premier League final after suffering an injury in Wednesday night's 35-run victory against Bangalore Royal Challengers.
Tendulkar, who turns 37 on Saturday, suffered an injury to his right hand while attempting a low catch at slips during Bangalore's run-chase.
Tendulkar said: "My right hand is not doing too great. I split my webbing and got five stitches during the game. But I will hopefully recover for the final."
The opening batsman praised his side for putting a match-winning total of 184 on the board after he went cheaply for nine.
He added: "Special mention goes to Ambati Rayudu (40) and Saurabh Tiwary's (52) performance, the mental strength they showed, the shot selection, the whole thing. I am very pleased with their showing."
The Indians will play the winner of tonight's clash between the Deccan Chargers and the Chennai Super Kings on Sunday.Reuse content
