New Delhi:

Sachin Tendulkar is fit for the Australia series, according to the report submitted by team physio Paul Close in Bangalore.

Tendulkar, 35, opted out of Irani Trophy after being advised to take a week's rest to recover from an elbow injury sustained during the recent Sri Lanka tour.

However, the BCCI had made it clear that Sachin will be available for the Australia series.

The Indian squad for the first Test in Bangalore will be named after the Irani Trophy.

Tendulkar, a veteran of 150 Tests, needs 77 runs to overtake retired West Indian Brian Lara's record tally of 11,953 runs and become Test cricket's highest run-getter.

The Indian already has a record 39 Test and 42 one-day centuries and is also the world's leading one-day batsman with 16,361 runs from 417 matches.

Tendulkar is hoping to make amends for a poor series in Sri Lanka, where his highest score was 31 in three Tests which the hosts won 2-1.

The world's most senior cricketer, who made his Test debut in 1989, has been plagued by a spate of injuries in recent times and underwent corrective surgery on his left elbow in 2005.

Tendulkar injured the elbow again while attempting to take a catch in the third Test in Sri Lanka last month and missed the subsequent one-day series.
