No Sachin at Barabati

Sachin Tendulkar

Bhubaneswar: Sachin Tendulkar, the Mumbai Indians’ icon, won’t be in the franchise’s dug out at the Barabati, in Cuttack, on Wednesday.

A member of the support staff told The Telegraph that Sachin could come in the morning (the squad arrived on Tuesday evening), but that won’t happen.

For, late in the day, Sachin himself sent an SMS to this Reporter: “I lost an uncle a few days ago, so not travelling for sometime. Also, I had a viral infection for five-six days.”

The Mumbai Indians are the IPL holders, but edition No.7 has been anything but successful. So far, at least.
