New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar is expected to be fit for India's tour of South Africa, starting October 1, the doctor, who is treating the maestro's foot injury, said on Tuesday.[an error occurred while processing this directive]"Sachin should recover from his foot injury by the end of September. I am hopeful that he will be ready to go to South Africa," Anant Joshi told NDTV in an interview for Star News.Tendulkar had to miss out on the Currentri Lach Hfered during India's recentZimbabwe tour."We will take another CT scan after three to four weeks to see how the healing is progressing," Joshi said adding in the meanwhile they will also work on protected footwear so that when he gets back there were no chances of his again getting injured.Normally any injury of a lower limb takes four to six weeks to join or gum up and another four to six weeks to really consolidate and become strong enough to take pressure, Joshi said while describing Tendulkar's injury as "fracture of great toe of the right foot."However, he said in case of players like Tendulkar, who are optimistic, the recovery was fast. Asked if the injury was due to overdose of cricket, the doctor said, "No.""In Sachin's case it has nothing to do with overdose of cricket. It is a plain simple accident which could happen to anybody." PTI
