After Australia test, Sachin Tendulkar's physio, John Gloster advised him to take a proper rest. Although he got a little bit time but that was not sufficient. Even hi advised to take rest for two-weeks. During the first test he was totally unfitted even he did not doing fielding well first, second and fourth day.
Tendulkar was advised two-weeks rest after the Australia tour and the then physio, John Gloster, in his fitness report, warned against the injury entering a chronic phase. Kaif last played a Test for India during the 2006 tour of the West Indies. He enjoyed an impressive domestic season for Uttar Pradesh and Central Zone, finishing fourth in the list of run-getters, scoring 993 runs in 13 first-class matches at an average of 58.41.
Mohammmad Kaif was selected for the second test instead of Tendulkar. Dear reader do you think is it right? I think tendulkar's bad performances are the main cause of drop out for the team??
