Here is the master, the man who can take control of any match with his swishing blade. He is the numero uno batsman in world cricket today, Sachin Tendulkar. An injured big toe kept him out of action during the Sri Lanka tour, which India lost. Tendulkar is back in action after treatment under the watchful eyes of Dr Mark Ferguson. The surgeon based in South Africa has prescribed him special shoes with extra padding to protect the sore toe. It is indeed good news for Indian cricket that the king is back, but, another flare up of that injury will completely deplete the Indian side. Never before has India suffered due to the number of players in the injury list.
