Bangalore :

Sachin Tendulkar was ruled out of the first cricket Test against Australia starting tomorrow. Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly said that Yuvraj Singh would replace the batting maestro in the final eleven. "Tendulkar is not playing in this Test match. We are hopeful for the next Test. Yuvraj will be in the team," said Ganguly. The 31-year-old Tendulkar, who has been suffering with a tennis elbow and has missed India's last three one-day tournaments, including the ICC champions Trophy, was included into the 15-member squad for the first two Tests but was to undergo a fitness test today. The Indian skipper admitted that the team would miss the services of Tendulkar with the bat as well as the ball. "He is a great player. We always miss him. We will miss him with the bat and the ball. We expect him to be fit for the next Test," said Ganguly. (PTI)
