Chennai:

Sachin Tendulkar's participation in the forthcoming Champions League T20 tournament is still in doubt as his Mumbai Indians team coach Robin Singh declined to comment on the availability of the master batsman who is recovering from a toe injury.

The coach confirmed the availability of off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who, like Tendulkar, had pulled out of the just-concluded tour of England owing to injury.

"Harbhajan is definitely available. If Sachin is not available, it will not affect the team greatly and it will be an opportunity for others to prove their mettle," said Robin Singh at a media conference here on  Saturday.

The Mumbai Indians, who open their Group A campaign with a game against defending champions the Chennai Super Kings here Sep 24, arrived here after a training camp in Bangalore.

"The same set of qualities that we displayed during our earlier matches in the IPL will only count. We are fairly well prepared. We had a camp in Bangalore before reaching here. Bangalore camp was very beneficial and players were able to gel together," he added.
