Tendulkar In Ankle Injury Scare For India

Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has caused some worries for the Indian camp ahead of their tour of Bangladesh, succumbing to an ankle injury.

34 year old Tendulkar, who has played 135 Tests and 384 one-day internationals for his country, hurt his ankle in the first training session under new cricket manager Ravi Shastri.

India are currently taking part in a five-day training camp in Kolkata prior to departing for Bangladesh on Monday.

VVS Laxman is not in attendance and may be a doubt for the tour due to illness.

Two Test matches and three one-day internationals will be played between India and Bangladesh in May.
