Sachin Tendulkar ruled out of the on-going England one-day series
India's master batsman, Sachin Tendulkar has been ruled out of the rest of the one-day series against England because of a toe injury, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) said on Monday.
Tendulkar has been advised rest for four weeks due to his toe injury.
Badrinath is supposedly said to replace Tendulkar for the series as Tendulkar became the eighth member of the squad to be forced out of the tour through injury.
Tendulkar missed the first one-dayer at Durham with a swollen toe, ensuring he would not make his eagerly-awaited 100th international century on the tour of England.
Middle-order batsman Rohit Sharma fractured his right index finger during the first one day intetrnational match of the series and was ruled out of the series, with Manoj Tiwary called up as his replacement.
Sharma followed Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Ishant Sharma and Harbhajan Singh who have already returned home with injuries.
The second one-dayer is at the Rose Bowl, Hampshire on Tuesday.
