Colombo:

Indian team suffered a major blow today with four of its main players including Sachin Tendulkar and Ishant Sharma, injured on the second day of the third and final cricket Test against Sri Lanka here but a clear picture of their participation in the game will be available tomorrow.

Tendulkar hurt his elbow, Sharma fell down during fielding, VVS Laxman sprained his ankle during practice in the morning and wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel sustained a cut near an eye.

"VVS Laxman has sprained his ankle and Tendulkar hyper-extended while fielding and jarred his elbow while Ishant landed on glaute (buttocks) and it is painful from the impact," Physio Nitin Patel told reporters.

"Hopefully, a clear picture will come up tomorrow," he added. On Parthiv, he said the wicketkeeper only had received a "minor cut" and he was expected to be okay. "I think he is ok. He has just a minor cut," he said.
