India undecided on Tendulkar

Mumbai, May 10:

India’s Sachin Tendulkar resumed training on Wednesday following shoulder surgery, but officials are unsure if he will be fit for the Test series in the West Indies in June.

Tendulkar faced a cricket ball for 25 minutes at the nets on Wednesday after a tennis-ball session on Tuesday.

Tendulkar batted for five minutes, took a break and then had a cricket ball thrown to him for 20 minutes at the Bandra-Kurla complex ground.

Cricket Board secretary Niranjan Shah said “both Sachin and (team physiotherapist) John Gloster were happy with the outcome of his first outing”.

“The review process for Sachin is an ongoing one and the decision regarding his availability will be taken soon once Gloster, Sachin, the surgeon and other affiliated parties are confident of his recovery,” said Shah.
