Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar may miss the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to an old toe injury resurfaced during England tour.

A source was quoted by PTI as saying, “Yes, Sachin Tendulkar has gone to London for consultation about his toe injury.

“He has been playing with this injury for long. It is not sure when he will return as even a surgery may be needed to correct it,” an Indian Cricket Board source told PTI on Wednesday.

The IPL begins on the 4th of April; Sachin is the captain of the Mumbai Indians team.

Tendulkar was also a notable absentee during Rahul Dravid s felicitation function attended by a galaxy of former and current India cricketers, BCCI officials and other dignitaries.
