Tendulkar cleared to play after scan on knee

11:14 am on 22 February 2011

India's key opening batsman Sachin Tendulkar should be fit for their next World Cup cricket game.

Tendulkar, the biggest scorer in the history of the game, underwent an MRI scan on Sunday night in Mumbai after he felt pain in his left knee.

But the Indian team manager says it's an old niggle and the MRI report is all clear.

The master batsman will join the rest of the Indian squad in Bangalore on Monday.

Three more one-day hundreds in the World Cup climaxing in his native Mumbai on April 2 would make him the only batsman to total 100 centuries in both tests and ODIs.
