London:

Batting ace Sachin Tendulkar today said the Indian team should "stick to the basics" to rediscover their winning touch. "Every game is a new game. It is important for the players to stick to the basics. Couple of bad games should not worry you," Tendulkar said. He said this just ahead of the second NatWest Challenge one-day cricket international against England. Injured hero The Little Master has been ruled out of the three-match series after the elbow injury failed to heal in time. He will have to clear a fitness test on the sidelines of the third and final match against England on September 5 before the ICC Champions Trophy. The recent injury has been one of the rare layoffs of his 15-year career since he made his debut as a 15-year-old in 1989. "It's frustrating. I left Mumbai with different plans, but was not prepared for this," Tendulkar told Star Sports. Recent defeats India has had a poor run in this season with defeats in Asia Cup in Sri Lanka as well as the Holland tri-series. India also suffered a seven-wicket thrashing in the opening match of the NatWest Challenge in London on Wednesday. (PTI)
