Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar will miss the one-day series against hosts Sri Lanka due to an elbow injury.

Tendulkar jarred his left elbow while attempting a catch on the second day of the third Test in Colombo on Saturday.

An Indian team official said the 35-year-old would be sidelined for between two to three weeks and be replaced by Subramaniam Badrinath.

He had only returned from injury for the three-Test series, having missed last month's Asia Cup in Pakistan.
