Sachin Tendulkar is to train and practice at Chennai's MRF Academy next week ahead of his fitness test on May 20, a top Cricket Board source said on Saturday.

"Tendulkar is to train at Chennai from May 15 to 20. They have good facilities at the MRF Academy and his training would be overseen by the trainer there, Ramji Srinivasan," the source said.

Tendulkar is recovering from the shoulder operation that he underwent in March-end and has missed the first part of the West Indies tour featuring five ODIs starting on May 18.

The champion batsman is racing against time to get fit before the selectors announce the team for the four-Test series against the West Indies on May 24 after the third ODI. The Test series runs from June two to July four.

Meanwhile, the ace batsman had another practice session of around two and a half hours this morning at the Bandra-Kurala complex ground belonging to the Mumbai Cricket Association.
