Sachin Tendulkar resumes training after undergoing hand surgery
Mumbai: Senior Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has started batting in the nets and is looking forward to the Champions League Twenty20 after recuperating from a surgery for a hand injury sustained during the Indian Premier League this year.
"Yes. I had surgery on my hand for the injury I sustained during the IPL match in May. I have already started batting in the nets since last ten days and I am looking forward to the Champions League," said Tendulkar today when asked about news reports that he underwent a surgery in London last month.
Champions League T20 tournament is scheduled to be held in different Indian cities from September 21 to October 6, with the qualifiers scheduled from September 17.
The 40-year-old batsman, who has retired from ODIs and T20 internationals, has not played a game since injuring his hand on May 13 when batting and retiring hurt with an unbeaten 38 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He missed the Mumbai Indians` last five games.
In his absence, Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians to their maiden IPL title when they vanquished two-time winners Chennai Super Kings in the final at Kolkata on May 26.
Tendulkar, now primed to play only Test matches, is all set to complete another milestone in his illustrious career when India visits South Africa at the end of this year.
The highest run-getter and century maker in both ODIs and longest form of the game is two matches adrift of appearing in 200 Test matches.
