Mumbai:Sourav Ganguly has a meeting scheduled with Indian team physiotherapist John Gloster on Friday in Mumbai for his elbow trouble, Cricket Board sources said here today.

"Gloster would be reaching here from Adelaide tomorrow night and would examine Ganguly on Friday," board sources told PTI.

Gloster would then proceed to Mohali for the October 10-13 N K P Salve Challenger Series for which the teams have been asked to assemble on October 8 evening, they added.

A top board official said earlier in the day that Ganguly was to consult Gloster and the board's Mumbai-based medical panel chief Dr Anant Joshi on his injured right elbow.

Ganguly, named to lead India Seniors in the limited overs tournament had injured his elbow during a practice game in Zimbabwe last month where he captained the squad.

Ganguly on Monday had consulted Kolkata orthopaedic surgeon Kalyan Mukherjee who advised him to undergo an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and the report is to be shown to Gloster when the player meets him, the official said.

Both Ganguly and Mukherjee refused to talk about the nature of the injury in Kolkata amidst speculation that it could be the early stage of tennis elbow that has been troubling Sachin Tendulkar for more than a year.

Tendulkar underwent surgery in London to set right the problem and missed India's visit to Zimbabwe as well as the tour of Sri Lanka earlier. He's scheduled to return to competitive cricket at Mohali after a four-month post-surgery lay-off.
