IND v NZ, 4th ODI, Hamilton: Tendulkar ruled out of Hamilton ODI

India's Sachin Tendulkar has been ruled out of the fourth one-day international against New Zealand at Hamilton on Wednesday, boosting the home side's hopes of turning their fortunes around.
India are 2-0 up in the five-match series after the second game was abandoned due to rain and a win in Hamilton would seal a series win. Star batsman Tendulkar hit a brilliant 163 in Christchurch in leading India to a massive total of 392 for four in a comprehensive 58-run victory on Sunday.
The "Little Master" retired hurt with a bruised abdomen and Indian management confirmed Tuesday he will miss the Hamilton game.
They said it was uncertain if he would play in the series finale in Auckland at the weekend, although he is believed likely to return for the three-Test series starting next week.
Tendulkar is expected to be replaced by Rohit Sharma, while pace bowler Ishant Sharma may return to the side, subject to a fitness test, after suffering a shoulder injury while fielding in a Twenty20 match last month.

The Blackcaps were bowled out for 334 in the 46th over. Jesse Ryder scored his maiden limited overs century for the home side.

IND v NZ, 1st ODI, Napier: Ishant likely to miss first ODI due to injury

India's pace sensation Ishant Sharma is likely to miss Tuesday's first cricket one-dayer against New Zealand due to injury.
The sinewy fast bowler had hurt his shoulder while fielding in the second Twenty20 international against New Zealand at the Westpac Stadium. An MRI scan carried out on his shoulder today revealed a bruise. The impact of falling on the ball is said to have aggravated an old injury.
"The MRI scan has disclosed that there is a bruise. We will watch him over the next two days. But it is likely that Ishant may miss the first ODI against New Zealand," said administrative manager Niranjan Shah, who is accompanying the Indian side.

Indian Test stars get New Zealand warm up

Six Indian Test cricketers will get match practice in New Zealand's domestic competition under an arrangement that avoids any conflict over the Indian Cricket League (ICL).
Test specialist batsmen Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and Murali Vijay along with bowlers Amit Mishrah, Lakshmipathy Balaji and Dhawal Kulkarni will make guest appearances to acclimatise to New Zealand conditions. The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) demanded the six players get time in the middle before the Tests start on March 18, but there was to be no contact with any player linked to the Indian Cricket League (ICL).
The BCCI's opposition to the so-called "rebel" ICL league was underlined last week when it barred Sachin Tendulkar and Dinesh Karthik from an exhibition Twenty20 game because a former ICL player was also involved. Under the pre-Test deal, five of the Indian players will join New Zealand teams with no ICL connection and playing teams without any ICL players.
