Kanpur: Former BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla on Tuesday, said that the board has not yet decided which city will host Sachin Tendulkar's much-anticipated 200th Test during the two-match series against West Indies in November.
"BCCI has not yet decided which city will host Sachin Tendulkar's 200 Test. Many state associations have shown interest in hosting the much-hyped match but BCCI is yet to arrive at a decision. Every association wants that Sachin achieves the historic feat at its stadium," Shukla said.
"Kolkata and Mumbai are the strong contenders. Eden Gardens has a sitting capacity of one lakh, while in Mumbai we have around 65,000," he added.
Asked if Kanpur can host the historic Test, Shukla said: "Kanpur's Green Park stadium has a small sitting capacity (30,000) and it is unlikely to host the 200th Test."
