Sachin Tendulkar ruled out of England ODI series

The Indian cricket team's injury woes were on Monday compounded with senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar ruled out of the England ODI series due to a toe injury.

Tendulkar was forced to sit out of the opening one-dayer against England at Chester-le-Street on Saturday.

Tendulkar has been carrying this injury for quite a while but the problem aggravated before the opener of the five-match series.

The batting maestro, who is just one short of completing the incredible milestone of 100 international centuries, may have to wait just a little longer with this latest injury.

It has been a wretched tour so far for India, who lost the Test series 0-4 before being handed a defeat in the lone Twenty20 match as well.

The team is already missing key players such as Rohit Sharma, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan due to injuries.

Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the five-match ODI series against England after suffering a fracture in the index finger of his right hand in the first ODI.

While Sehwag is out because of hearing problems, Gambhir has been forced to go back due to blurred vision following an awkward fall during a Test. Zaheer, on the other hand, has already undergone an ankle surgery.
