The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is going all out to make Sachin Tendulkar’s 200th and last match of his cricketing career a memorable one. The MCA has planned to use a special 10-gram gold coin custom made for the historic event which features the icon’s photo at one end and the MCA logo on the other.
The player is set to play his 199th and 200th Test matches at Eden Gardens and Wankhede respectively. The replicas of the coins are also said to be made available for fans who would want to collect them as memorabilia.
Other plans for the match include giving away masks of the legend for fans on all five days of the Test and also 4′s and 6′s placards to be given to the fans for free.
There will also be huge cut-outs of the maestro on all the gates of the Wankhede stadium, special balloons with the player’s face on them and statistics of all the centuries scored by Tendulkar will be on display inside the stadium for fans who crave information.
