Tendulkar to meet surgeon

sachin-ovalLondon: The Indian cricket teams  senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar has been forced  to sit out of the opening one-dayer against England here due to a toe injury. Tendulkar’s injury is said to have aggravated as he has been ignoring it for quite sometime.

Tendulkar will meet a surgeon, either on Sunday or on Monday, according to team sources. The batting maestro, who is just one short of completing the incredible milestone of 100 international centuries, may have to wait just a little longer with this latest injury.

The team is already missing key players such as Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan due to injuries and if Tendulkar is also ruled, it would be yet another massive blow for the visitors.

While Sehwag is out because of hearing problems, Gambhir has been forced to go back due to blurred vision following an awkward fall during a Test. Zaheer, on the other hand, has already undergone an ankle surgery.
