Mumbai Indians heaved a sigh of relief after key all-rounder Kieron Pollard was found fit for Sunday’s Indian Premier League final even though there remains a cloud of doubt over captain Sachin Tendulkar’s availability.

“There is no problem with Pollard. He’s fit,” team sources said.

Pollard was seen limping during the semifinal tie against Royal Challengers Bangalore while batting as well as bowling even though it did not deter the big-built West Indian from dishing out a superb all-round display.

“He had some cramps, but he’s okay now,” the sources added.

While the green signal for Pollard is a big boost to MI, a question mark hangs over the availability of captain Sachin Tendulkar for Sunday’s summit clash.

“We will take a call on Sachin in two days. Nothing can be said before that,” sources said.
