Tendulkar cleared to play after scan on left knee
India’s key opening batsman Sachin Tendulkar has undergone an MRI scan on his left knee but he should be fit for their next World Cup game, the team’s manager said on Monday.
Tendulkar, the biggest scorer in the history of the game, stayed behind in Mumbai for the scan on Sunday when the rest of the squad flew to Bangalore for their game with England on Sunday.
Ranjib Biswal told Reuters: “It’s an old injury. It was just a niggle. It’s nothing to worry about. The (MRI) report is all clear.”
India won their first match in Dhaka on Saturday, beating Bangladesh by 87 runs. Tendulkar was run out for 28.
