Sachin Tendulkar will bid a fond farewell to the sport he has loved and excelled in over the last two decades, having made a wonderful 74 in the first innings of his final Test, against the West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium.

All eyes will undoubtedly be on Sachin Tendulkar for obvious reasons when the second Test of the series against West Indies gets underway at Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.

For Sachin Tendulkar, it will end where it all began. For a man who began his journey by representing Mumbai at various levels before jumping to the big league, it is only fair that he plays his farewell Test at his home ground, the Wankhede Stadium.

The city of Mumbai may have produced great cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar and Sachin Tendulkar over the years, but the Wankhede Stadium, situated in the heart of the city, is definitely not a lucky venue for India as far as Test cricket is concerned.
