Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium will be hosting the farewell Test for Sachin Tendulkar after the legendary batsman expressed a wish to play his landmark 200th match against the West Indies next month in front of his home crowd.

The BCCI's Programmes and Fixtures committee, headed by Rajiv Shukla, met here today to chalk out the detailed schedule of the hastily-arranged series comprising two Tests and three one-dayers.

Shukla said that the committee decided to grant Tendulkar's wish to play his last Test at the venue where he made his debut in first class cricket - the Wankhede Stadium.

The Eden Gardens in Kolkata will host the opening clash of the series from November 6 to 10 and like Wankhede, gets an 'out-of-turn' Test match as according to the BCCI's rotational policy, it was actually Bangalore and Ahmedabad's turn. The second Test is scheduled from November 14-18.
