Tendulkar is fine and ready to play: Robin Singh
Tendulkar got hit on his right hand finger during the IPL opener between Mumbai Indians and defending champions Chennai Super Kings while fending at a rising delivery from left-arm speedster Doug Bollinger and has seen action only from the sidelines since then.
"He's fine to play and is playing tomorrow," informed Mumbai Indians coach team Robin Singh the Wankhede Stadium at the pre-game media conference.
There was some concern on Saturday at the nets when Tendulkar got hit on his finger after facing a few balls and he came off the nets. But he later joined the fielding drills taking catches off tennis ball hits by team's fielding coach Jonty Rhodes.
Robin insisted that there was nothing to worry. "He just got a small hit on the finger. He's playing tomorrow," insisted the coach.
Meanwhile, another key member of the squad, Lasith Malinga will miss tomorrow's game, having gone back to Sri Lanka to get treatment for a sore back but Robin Singh said that the bowler is expected back next week.
"He has got a sore back but he will be back early next week," said the former India all-rounder.
Sri Lanka pacer missed the previous game against Delhi Daredevils on April 16.
