Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Apr 18 (UNI) The Indian team received a body blow before the start of the West Indies tour with batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar deciding to skip the five-match one-day series to give more time for his shoulder to heal.

Tendulkar, who had underwent a shoulder operation in London last month, opted out of the series pending a decision on his availabilty for the four-match Test series which will be known after the master blaster undergoes a fitness test on May 10, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) sources told UNI here today.

Sources said Tendulkar had already informed the BCCI about his unavailibity.

The selectors would be meeting here on Thursday to chose the one-day squad for West Indies.

Tendulkar, after surgery on March 27, was advised a 26-day rehabilitation programme.

The sources said the batsman was progressing steadily but he was not taking any risk in returning to the game too early. He wants to be fully fit and then only he would make himself available, the sources added.
