New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar is unlikely to play in Mumbai Indians' IPL Qualifier 2 in Kolkata on Friday against the Rajasthan Royals as he is yet to recover from his left-wrist injury he sustained in a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad last week.
"Sachin Tendulkar has injured his left wrist and hand while batting in the game against SRH on 13th May. On investigations we have found that there is some swelling in the wrist and around one of the tendons of his left hand," Mumbai Indians said in a statement.
"We have addressed this with an injection in his hand by a hand and wrist specialist. He is currently under rehab and is progressing well. The normal recovery time for this injury is around 3 weeks, however rehab results in the past 9 days have shown reasonable improvements and we are hopeful to get him back in action as soon as possible," the statement said.
