The Wankhede stadium in Mumbai will host Sachin Tendulkar’s landmark 200th and final Test with the BCCI acceding to the legendary batsman’s wish to play his farewell match in front of his home crowd.

The BCCI’s Programmes and Fixtures committee, headed by Rajiv Shukla, on Tuesday chalked out the detailed schedule of the hastily-arranged series against the West Indies, comprising two Tests and three one-dayers to be held next month.

“Tendulkar had requested that the 200th Test match should be given to Mumbai, so that his mother could also watch the match. The BCCI president and BCCI thought about it and accepted it. Keeping that sentiment in mind, it has been allocated to Wankhede stadium in Mumbai (scheduled from November 14-18),” Shukla told reporters…
