Tendulkar out for up to three months after operation

Written by: Staff

LONDON, Mar 27 (Reuters) India batsman Sachin Tendulkar could be sidelined for up to three months after having keyhole surgery on his shoulder at a London hospital today.

''His arm will be immobilised in a sling for up to six weeks and it is unlikely that he will be fit for selection for international cricket for up to two to three months depending on regular review,'' consultant orthopaedic surgeon Andrew Wallace said in a statement.

''The surgery proceeded successfully without any complications.'' Tendulkar, who holds the record for most centuries in tests (35) and one-dayers (39), suffered the injury to his right shoulder during a match with Sri Lanka late last year.

India are due to tour West Indies in May.
