May 29, 2008 18:07 IST
Sachin Tendulkar [Images] is ruled out of the upcoming cricket tri-series in Bangladesh, and subsequent Asia Cup, because of a niggling groin injury.
Tendulkar, who missed the first seven matches of the Indian Premier League [Images] because of the injury, was declared unfit by Mumbai Indians' [Images] physiotherapist, Nitin Patel, for the June 8 to 14 tri-series, also involving Pakistan.
"Tendulkar is not available for the tri-series as well as the Asia Cup on the advice of Mumbai Indians physiotherapist Nitin Patel. He has not recovered sufficiently from his groin injury," BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah informed in Mumbai on Thursday.
Tendulkar will also skip the Asia Cup, to be held in Pakistan from June 24 to July 6, he added.
