Sachin Tendulkar has undergone an MRI scan on his left knee but he should be fit for their next World Cup game, the team's manager said on Monday.
Tendulkar stayed behind in Mumbai for the scan on Sunday when the rest of the squad flew to Bangalore for their game with England next Sunday (Feb. 27).
The 37-year old batsman underwent an MRI scan on Sunday night at Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital after he felt pain in his left knee.
“It's an old injury. It was just a niggle. It's nothing to worry about. The (MRI) report is all clear,” Indian team manager Ranjib Biswal said.
Tendulkar will join the rest of the Indian squad in Bangalore on Monday.
Three more one-day hundreds in the World Cup would make him the only batsman to total 100 centuries in both Tests and ODIs.
Tendulkar became the most capped one-day player in cricket during Saturday's win over Bangladesh with his 445th appearance. A mix-up with match-winner Virender Sehwag lost him the chance to join the run feast on a placid track against a weak attack.
