Sachin to play his last test match

Mumbai: In order to prepare for the
two-match Test series against the
West Indies next month, Sachin
Tendulkar will play for Mumbai in the
Ranji Trophy preliminary round match
against Haryana at Lahli starting on
October 27.
Tendulkar, who will retire after playing
the second Test (November 14-18)
against the West Indies at the
Wankhede Stadium here, will play in
the Ranji game to warm up for the
series.
MCA joint secretary Nitin Dalal told
PTI that Tendulkar and pacer Zaheer
Khan will play for Mumbai on the
October 27-30 Ranji match at Lahli, a
small town in Rohtak district in
Haryana.
"Yes, Tendulkar and Zaheer are
playing against Haryana in the Ranjji
Trophy opener for Mumbai," Dalal
said.
Last season also, Tendulkar had
turned up for Mumbai before playing
the Test series against England at
home.
The 40-year-old Tendulkar last week
announced his decision to retire from
Test cricket after playing his landmark
200th match, bringing an end to the
intense speculation about his future.
The Board had squeezed in the home
series against the West Indies to give
Tendulkar an opportunity to retire in
front of his home fans.
The first Test against the West Indies
-- Tendulkar`s 199th -- will be played
at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata from
November 6-10.
