Although a formal announcement is awaited, Sachin Tendulkar is set to play his 200th Test at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. Board of Control for Cricket in India sources say the former Indian captain has expressed his keenness to reach the milestone in front of his home fans.

The Cricket Association of Bengal is also keen to host Tendulkar's 200th Test. Like the Mumbai Cricket Association, CAB has also formally applied to the BCCI. Interestingly, according to BCCI's rotational policy neither Kolkata nor Mumbai are eligible to host this Test match.

A senior BCCI functionary said: "Since Sachin has expressed something, it is difficult to say no. Plus from a sentimental standpoint, he deserves to play in Mumbai." A formal decision is expected on October 3 when the fixtures committee announces the dates of the December Test and ODI series against the West Indies.

A senior CAB official said nothing has been decided about Tendulkar's match. "We are not expecting to host the game because Tendulkar has already made it public that he wants to play in Mumbai. Let's say if Sourav Ganguly was playing his 200th Test, would he choose Mumbai? If it comes to Eden Gardens, we will make a grand show of Sachin's Test, but if we don't get to host, we will accept that too."
