Where to Watch Live

Play is scheduled to start at 4am GMT. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports 2 and Sky Sports 2 HD from 14-18 November.


Tendulkar made his test debut on 15 November 1989 against Pakistan when he was 16 years old. Today, exactly 24 years later the master blaster will play his 200<sup>th and final test for India in what has been one of the greatest sporting careers in history. Hailed as the best player of all time, Sachin is India's greatest asset when it comes to the sporting arena, someone who can raise a sense of belief among people and inculcate a feeling of euphoria in the most sordid of times. A role model for many people across the globe, the Little Master will start his life on a new pitch from 19 November, a day when many cricket lovers will have to get used to seeing him on the stands or in the commentary box.

For probably the first time in the history of the game, a match has been overshadowed by an individual. However, coming to the context of the game, India will need to focus on the match than get carried away by the myriad of emotions that are set in as the test progresses. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has to marshal his troops properly, who face the possibility of being overawed by the occasion and losing their way. The South Asian side lead the series 1-0, having won the first test by an innings. A win here will be a fitting farewell to India's greatest batsman and an opportunity for other players to impress and put themselves in contention for India's tour of South Africa.

West Indies will be disappointed by their performance in the first test and will be looking to rectify their mistakes this time around and try to gatecrash Sachin's farewell party. The Caribbeans dominated the last game at times and were well on top before an innings from Rohit Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin pulled them apart. All eyes will be on Shane Shillingford who is likely to get some turn on the Wankhede pitch which is bound to help the spinners.
