Tendulkar to finish at home

What is set to be Sachin Tendulkar's 200th and final Test will be staged in his home city of Mumbai, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has confirmed.

Tendulkar, the highest run-scorer in Test and one-day international history, announced last week he will retire from India duty following next month’s second Test against West Indies.

The BCCI, at their tour programme and fixtures committee meeting today, granted Tendulkar his wish of bowing out at his home ground, the Wankhede Stadium.

The first Test will take place in Kolkata from November 6 with the Mumbai match due to start eight days later.

India will then meet the Windies in a three-game ODI series starting in Kochi on November 21.
