Sachin Tendulkar ruled out of one-day series
Monday 05 September 2011
India batsman Sachin Tendulkar has been ruled out of the remainder of the one-day international series against England due to a toe injury, India's team manager Shivlal Yadav confirmed today.
Tendulkar, who continues to chase an elusive 100th international century, missed the opener at Chester-le-Street on Saturday and the Indian camp announced today their star man is facing up to four weeks on the sidelines.
No replacement will be called up to an India squad which has been beset with health concerns in recent weeks.
Rohit Sharma was also ruled out yesterday after suffering a fractured finger in the match at the weekend, which was rained off. Manoj Tiwary has been called up to take his place.
Tendulkar will become the eighth player to fly home from India's difficult tour, following Sharma, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Ishant Sharma and Harbhajan Singh.
India will be hoping that Tiwary will be ready in time to join the team for tomorrow's second match at the Rose Bowl, with their batting stocks diminished further following the news on Tendulkar.
The Little Master has scored a record 18,111 ODI runs at an average of 45.16.
