Sachin Tendulkar is yet to recover from his groin injury that kept him out of the ongoing second Test against South Africa in Ahmedabad and will also miss the third Test in Kanpur, starting on April 11.
The Indian board confirmed this in a release and added that he would continue with his rehabilitation program. “This decision has been taken to give Sachin the opportunity to make a full recovery from this injury,” the release said. “Sachin has a rehabilitation program to continue with and will be monitored closely.”
Tendulkar didn’t appear fully fit during the first Test in Chennai and missed part of the action on the first, second, fourth days. He didn’t take the field on the fifth day and was rested for the next Test.
There was an injury concern over Tendulkar even before the start of the series. Tendulkar was advised two-weeks rest after the Australia tour and the then physio, John Gloster, in his fitness report, warned against the injury entering a chronic phase.
Tendulkar will now be expected to be fully fit ahead of the inaugural Indian Premier League, starting on April 18.
