Tendulkar, the biggest scorer in the history of the game, stayed behind in Mumbai for the scan on Sunday when the rest of the squad flew to Bangalore for their game with England on Feb 27.

"It's an old injury. It was just a niggle. It's nothing to worry about. The (MRI) report is all clear," Ranjib Biswal said.

India won their first match in Dhaka on Saturday, beating Bangladesh by 87 runs. Tendulkar was run out for 28.
