Injured Sachin To Return Back Home

Sachin Tendulkar - Hamstring Injury

Sachin Tendulkar – Hamstring Injury

Injury concerns for India in this series continue to perpetuate as Sachin Tendulkar who acquired a hamstring while batting in the second ODI on Saturday, is to miss the rest of the series. The team manager Ranjib Biswal confirmed that Tendulkar would return back home.

Tendulkar is the fourth first choice player to return back home after Sehwag, Gambhir and Praveen Kumar. Notably, India has never played with their full strength squad over the past few years. Tendulkar’s return following Sehwag, Gambhir and Praveen Kumar is seen as a precautionary measure, as the selectors are not ready to risk the master batsmen ahead of the World Cup.

Parthiv Patel has flown as a replacement for Tendulkar, given that he could also open the innings alongside with an out of form Murali Vijay apart from keeping wickets. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are to play a stand-in opener role in the upcoming matches. Dhoni was wary of Vijay’s form at the top and expressed his confidence that he would find form in the upcoming games.

Hi Folks! This is Gautham from Madurai, Tamil Nadu. I'm 20 and doing my final year in Mechanical Engineering at Thiagarajar College of Engineering. I'm a self confessed Cricket lover and I have a great fervor towards writing about the game. In the generations I've come across, I've loved watching Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid bat. Besides writing, I have great interest in singing and I'm a great fan of Hariharan and A.R.Rahman sir. I would like to be remembered as one of the greatest sports journalists who changed the way their profession is perceived. I set myself performance goals and believe in giving a hundred percent in whatever I do. I thank God for giving me an opportunity to work with sports mirror so early in my career. I also thank my friends who made me believe in what I do and gave honest comments about my writing. God is great :)
