The star batsman has been ruled out of India's forthcoming tour in May, following a shoulder surgery in London.

Sachin Tendulkar was on Tuesday effectively ruled out of the forthcoming tour of the West Indies after he was declared unlikely to be fit to play for "up to two to three months" following a keyhole shoulder surgery in London.

Dr Andrew Wallace, the orthopaedic surgeon who operated on the Indian batting star on Monday, said Tendulkar's availability for selection would depend on "regular review."

"Tendulkar's arm will be immobilised in a sling for up to six weeks and it is unlikely that he will be fit for selection for international cricket for up to two to three months depending on regular review," said Wallace of the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth.

India's tour of the Caribbean begins with the first one-dayer on May 18.

"Sachin is recovering well from the shoulder surgery. As expected after this type of surgery, Sachin's shoulder is sore today," Wallace, who also performed a surgery on Tendulkar's elbow last year, said.

"We will be monitoring him throughout the day and keep him in the hospital overnight so that we can give him the pain relief he needs.

Sachin underwent arthroscopic surgery to stabilise his right shoulder joint and reattach a damaged biceps tendon to his upper arm bone.
