SachinMumbai:  India's master blaster Sachin Tendulkar could miss the test series against Australia starting in Bangalore on Oct. 9 after injury ruled him out of a Irani trophy next week.

Tendulkar suffered an elbow injury during the third test in Sri Lanka last month which forced him out of the ODI matches,

He had declared himself available for the Irani Trophy match, seen as a selection game for the Australia series, but the physiotherapist at the National Cricket Academy advised him another week's rest to recuperate.

"He is not playing the Irani Trophy as he has been advised a week of rehabilitation," Ratnakar Shetty, the board's chief administrative officer, told reporters on Saturday.

Tendulkar missed the first two tests of Australia's last tour four years ago due to tennis elbow.
