CRICKET: Kolkata and Mumbai get WI Tests

Published:Tuesday | October 15, 2013 | 2:48 PM

Eden Gardens in Kolkata and the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host India's two Tests against West Indies in November, which will mark the end of Sachin Tendulkar's 24-year career.

While Eden Gardens will host the first Test from November 6-10, Tendulkar's farewell Test will be played at his home ground from November 14-18.

The decision was taken during the Board of Control for Cricket in India's tour programme and fixtures committee meeting in Mumbai today.

While the first two One-Day Internationals of the tour will be played at Kochi, November 21; and Visakhapatnam, November 24; either Baroda or Kanpur will stage the last match of the series on November 27.

Barabati Stadium in Cuttack will host the visitors' preparations prior to the series, including a three-day game to be played from October 31-November 2.

The series against West Indies wasn't scheduled on the Future Tours Programme.

When it was announced in September, it raised doubts over the schedule and duration of India's tour to South Africa, and whether the series would be Tendulkar's last.

Tendulkar confirmed that it would indeed be his farewell series last week.
