India batsman Sachin Tendulkar will miss the one-day international series against Sri Lanka because of an elbow injury.
Tendulkar will soon return to India, team manager T.C. Matthew said. He did not elaborate.
Tendulkar injured his left elbow while attempting a catch on the second day of the third test at P. Saravanamuttu Stadium. Sri Lanka won the test Monday by eight wickets to take the series 2-1. In the second innings Tendulkar came out to bat with a bandaged elbow and scored just 14 runs.
Tendulkar has scored 16,361 runs in 417 one-day internationals. The first of five one-day matches will be played in Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium on Monday.
