The BCCI’s Tour, Programme & Fixture committee will meet at the Cricket Centre here on Tuesday to finalise the schedule for the home series — two Tests and three ODIs —against the West Indies in November.
A full house is expected for the two Tests because Sachin Tendulkar has announced that he would take his final bow after playing the second Test which will be his 200th. The Mumbai Cricket Association has confirmed that it would host the second Test at the Wankhede Stadium. The BCCI’s rotation policy will bring into the picture the claims of Chennai, Bangalore, Nagpur, Kolkata and Delhi to host the 199th Test.
Chennai may be ruled out because of the threat of rain, and Bangalore will host a one-day international against Australia on November 2.
