India A Captain Subramaniam Badrinath has been named as the replacement of Sachin Tendulkar in the Rest of India Squad. Sachin Tendulkar has been advised a week’s rest by the Indian Team Physio.
Tendulkar had declared himself fit a few days back and was picked in the Rest of India Squad to play Delhi in the Irani Trophy. But he had to be ruled out of the match on precautionary basis. Ironically, it was S Badrinath who had replaced Tendulkar when he had picked the elbow injury during the Sri Lanka Test Series. Badrinath played a crucial innings in one of his three ODIs to help India win through his cool temperament. The right hander had also shown sound technique against the likes of Ajantha Mendis and Muttiah Muralitharan.
Sachin Tendulkar might be missing the Irani Trophy match which begins on the 24th at Baroda but he will play the first Test against Australia which begins on October 9th.
