Tendulkar out of IPL with hand injury

New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar will not take further part in the Indian Premier League owing to an injury on his left hand, his team Mumbai Indians said Wednesday.

Tendulkar, who did not play the Qualifier I against Chennai Super Kings here Tuesday, has been ruled out of action for three weeks, according to a Mumbai Indians statement.

“Sachin Tendulkar has injured his left wrist and hand while batting in the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad on 13th May. On investigation, we have found that there is some swelling in the wrist and around one of the tendons of his left hand,” said the statement.

“He is currently under rehab and is progressing well. The normal recovery time for this injury is around three weeks, however rehab results in the past nine days have shown reasonable improvements and we are hopeful to get him back in action as soon as possible.”

Mumbai Indians lost to Super Kings and now take on the winner of the Eliminator at the Eden Gardens Friday for a spot in the final.

Mumbai Indians pacer Dhawal Kulkarni also played his last match of IPL6.

“Dhawal has sustained a side-strain during the game against Kings XI Punjab in Dharamshala on 18th May. He will take about six weeks to recover completely and has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament,” the statement added.
