Amsterdam:

Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has been ruled out of the Videocon Cup tri-nation tournament due to a 'tennis elbow'. "Tendulkar will not be participating in any of the matches of this tournament due to an acute onset of tennis elbow," Indian team manager Gautam Dasgupta announced. Tennis elbow is a term used to describe pain and inflammation in the region of the elbow joint. Tendulkar had complained of stiffness in the elbow while practising for long periods at home but thought the discomfort was minor. Team physiotherapist Andrew Leipus has advised the champion batsman to undergo conservative treatment and rehabilitation. An independent medical opinion taken in Amsterdam also supported this rehabilitation programme. The results of the initial physiotherapy treatments are promising and the Indian team management hopes to have him ready for the NatWest Challenge against England in the first week of September.
