Kolkata’s Eden Gardens stadium and Mumbai Wankhede stadium have been involved in a tug of war over hosting the second and last match of the series.

According to the Cricket Association for Bengal, the second Test was to be played in Eden Gardens as per the rotation policy of the BCCI for Tests.

On the other hand, Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) said Sachin should play his last match at his home ground.

Sachin himself wants to play his last match in his home ground and requested the BCCI to change the venue. According to MCA president Ravi Sawant, the BCCI accepted Tendulkar’s request to arrange the second and last Test at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

The decision will be announced officially on Tuesday in the Program Committee of BCCI.
