    Default Tendulkar opts out of tri-series in Bangladesh


    Tendulkar opts out of tri-series in Bangladesh

    NEW DELHI: World batting record holder Sachin Tendulkar has opted out of next month''s limited-overs tri-series in Bangladesh, the Indian cricket board said on Saturday.

    Tendulkar, 36, was not named in India''s 16-man squad for the tri-series, also featuring Sri Lanka, which will be played in the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka from January 4-13.

    Tendulkar will, however, be available for the two Test matches against Bangladesh that follow the tri-series, cricket board secretary N. Srinivasan said in a statement.

    "Sachin Tendulkar desired to be rested for the tri-series in Bangladesh. He will play the Tests against Bangladesh," Srinivasan said.

    Tendulkar is the world''s leading run-getter and century-maker in both Test (12,970 runs, 43 hundreds) and one-day cricket (17,394 runs, 45 hundreds.)

    The selectors dropped seamers Ishant Sharma and Praveen Kumar, and left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha, for the tri-series.

    They were replaced by seamers Shanthakumaran Sreesanth and Ashok Dinda, and leg-spinner Amit Mishra.

    Middle-order batsman Rohit Sharma, who did not figure in the ongoing one-day series against Sri Lanka, was recalled.

    The team for the Tests in Chittagong (Jan 17-21) and Dhaka (Jan 24-28) will be announced later.

    India''s squad for tri-series:
    Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Sudeep Tyagi, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Ashok Dinda, Amit Mishra.
