New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar, is reportedly on his way to recovery from the viral infection that stopped him from fielding for 215 minutes during England's second innings.
He came out to field after tea and will now be able to bat on Monday only either after 12.41pm local time (17.11 IST) or at the fall of the fifth wicket, whichever is earlier.
That could leave the master blaster with little time to get his 100th century even if he gets going. The foremost thought on Sachin's mind will anyway be of saving the Test for India.
With India in a tight spot and battling to stay in the Test, this may well be one time that Indian fans could end up praying for Sachin to not come on the pitch at all.
