Sachin Tendulkar to miss Indian GP this time, Yuvraj to come
Greater Noida: Veteran cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who waved the chequered flag at the inaugural Indian Grand Prix, will miss the second edition of the Formula One race to play a Ranji match for his Mumbai team.
It has been learnt that Tendulkar, who is a motorsports enthusiast, decided to prefer practising with the team in Mumbai than coming here.
Tendulkar, who is going through a lean patch, is scheduled to play the first match of the new season against Railways in Mumbai on November 2.
It will be after a gap of three years that the senior batsman will play a Ranji match for his state side.
The organisers have invited Sports Minister Ajay Maken to wave the chequered flag this time although they have not got the confirmation from him as yet.
It has also been learnt that Yuvraj Singh, who has made a comeback after recovering from a rare germ cell cancer, will attend the high profile race at the Buddh International Circuit on Sunday.
Tennis star Sania Mirza and her Pakistani cricketer husband Shoaib Malik will also be in the stands as Sahara guests.
