Mumbai, Apr 5 (ANI): Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who is suffering from a groin injury, has been ruled out of third Test against South Africa to be played in Kanpur from April 11.
Confirming this in a release, the BCCI said that he would continue with his rehabilitation programme.
“This decision has been taken to give Sachin the opportunity to make a full recovery from this injury,” the release said.
