Injured Tendulkar doubtful for Rajasthan Royals game

Mumbai: Mumbai Indians, who have qualified for the IPL 6 play-offs, could miss the services of Sachin Tendulkar for Wednesday's last home game against Rajasthan Royals if he fails to recover sufficiently from the injury to his left hand.

"He has a left wrist sprain. It does not look bad. The team management will take a call on his playing tomorrow afternoon," a team spokesperson said on Tuesday.

Tendulkar sprained his hand when hitting a six in MI's come-from-behind victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad last night and retired hurt after making an unbeaten 38 in 31 balls.

Tendulkar has scored 287 runs from the 14 games he played so far this season, with 54 as his best effort.

MI have been assured of a play-offs berth following Tuesday's defeat of Royal Challengers Bangalore at home against Kings XI Punjab.
