Melbourne:

Former coach John Buchanan has handed Australia a blueprint to rock Sachin Tendulkar in the forthcoming series, saying the Indian batsman is susceptible to short-pitched bowling early in his innings.

Operation "Get Tendulkar" will be the key plank of Australia's plan for the four-Test series this summer and Buchanan's video analysis of the Indian provides crucial intelligence.

He has noticed Tendulkar's footwork has become sluggish, especially early in his innings, making him vulnerable to quicker and shorter bowling followed by the sucker punch of a fuller delivery.

"What I've been seeing for a while is that his feet don't move early in his innings and he is not very fluid early on," Buchanan told The Advertiser.
