Indian batting superstar Sachin Tendulkar will skip the upcoming series of limited-overs matches in Sri Lanka, the national selectors announced yesterday

Tendulkar, who does not play in international Twenty20 games, has dismissed talk of retirement but has chosen to play in only some of India’s ODIs in recent years. “Sachin is not available (for selection). He must be aiming for the England and Australia series later this season,” chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth said. England and Australia are due to tour India later in the season.

Yuvi back for T20 WC?
Meanwhile, Srikkanth said he was hopeful that Yuvraj Singh could make it for the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

“Yuvraj has started practice, which is a very good thing. A guy who has won the World Cup should come back. We are all hoping for that. We want Yuvraj back for T20 WC,” said Srikkanth.
