Mumbai Indians skipper Sachin Tendulkar, recovering from a groin injury, will not be seen in action in the Indian Premier League match against Chennai Super Kings to be played at the M A Chidambaram stadium here.
“I am not too sure whether Tendulkar will play in our match tomorrow,” South African all rounder Shaun Pollock said here.
Tendulkar did not play the first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday. His team suffered a five wicket loss in a low scoring match.
Talking to the media soon after the team’s practice session here, Pollock said, “the physio of the team will have a look at Tendulkar’s injury.” Explaining the importance of the ace batsman’s availability in the later part of the tournament he said, “we are not pushing him since it is a long tournament. He is a key player in our team’s scheme of things and we do not want to rush him.” Asked whether Tendulkar’s absence would mean added pressure on Sri Lankan Sanath Jayasuriya he said, “He is in a good touch and he will continue with his form. If he gets going in the initial seven overs, there will be good score on board. He knows how to handle Muthiah (Muralitharan).”
