Mumbai: After MS Dhoni and Darren Sammy walk out for the toss in Sachin Tendulkar's 200th and farewell Test at the Wankhede on November 14, a freshly minted coin will be spun to determine who bats/bowls first.
Prof Ratnakar Shetty, General Manager Game's Development of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), revealed to MiD DAY that the coin is amongst many plans to celebrate the Little Master's feat. "On one side of the coin, we will have Tendulkar's portrait and on the other, we will have a logo. It will either be the BCCI's or the MCA's logo," Shetty said.
BCCI president N Srinivasan will felicitate Tendulkar before the start of the Test while a grand felicitation function by the Board will be organised after the match. "We want to keep the focus on the Test match. Tendulkar's felicitation will take place like it was done for Rahul Dravid," Shetty informed.
