Star cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was on Monday admitted to the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth for undergoing a shoulder surgery.

The surgery will be done by Dr Andrew Wallace who had earlier successfully performed an operation to cure the master batsman of tennis elbow.

Suzy Butler, a spokeswoman for the hospital, confirmed that Tendulkar had been admitted to the hospital on Monday but said no other information would be given to the media for the moment.

"In line with the hospital's policy to protect the privacy of all of its patients, no one will be allowed access into the building or to interview Sachin Tendulkar," she said in a statement.

Tendulkar has been ruled out of the seven match one-day series against England commencing on Tuesday because of the injury, diagnosed as a posterior labrum tear of the right shoulder with an associated para-labral cyst.

The champion batsman had been experiencing problems in throwing since the Test series against Sri Lanka last December. The problem aggravated of late, necessitating the surgery.

Tendulkar, who holds the record for scoring the maximum number of centuries in Tests (35) and one-days (39), was earlier sidelined for six months after undergoing surgery for the tennis elbow in May 2005.
