February 25, 2010 13:02 IST

Sachin TendulkarCricket lovers in Ahmedabad, where the third and the last One Day International of the series against South Africa is scheduled to be played on February 27, would be deprived of a vintage Sachin Tendulkar show, as the master blaster has been rested for the match.

According to sources, the team management has decided to rest Tendulkar and test the bench strength in Ahmedabad, as India has already pocketed the three-match series.

National selectors will meet in Chennai on Thursday to pick the Indian squad for third and final One-dayer against South Africa and also the probables for the 2011 cricket World Cup, a day after Tendulkar blasted his way into the record books by hitting the first ever double century in ODI's against the Proteas.

It was not only Tendulkar''s 46th ODI century but it also marked the highest score in One-dayers, eclipsing the previous record of 194 which was held by Pakistan's Saeed Anwar and Zimbabwe's Charles Conventry.
