NEW DELHI, Dec 26, 2009 (AFP) - World batting record holder Sachin Tendulkar has opted out of next month's limited-overs tri-series in Bangladesh, the Indian cricket board said on Saturday.

Tendulkar, 36, was not named in India's 16-man squad for the tri-series, also featuring Sri Lanka, which will be played in the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka from January 4-13.

Tendulkar will, however, be available for the two Test matches against Bangladesh that follow the tri-series, cricket board secretary N. Srinivasan said in a statement.

“Sachin Tendulkar desired to be rested for the tri-series in Bangladesh. He will play the Tests against Bangladesh,” Srinivasan said.

The team for the Tests in Chittagong (Jan 17-21) and Dhaka (Jan 24-28) will be announced later.

India's squad for tri-series:

Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Sudeep Tyagi, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Ashok Dinda, Amit Mishra.
