Mumbai: In view of crowd frenzy and hype surrounding the farewell match of Sachin Tendulkar, Mumbai police has drawn up an extensive security plan which includes ensuring that the Master Blaster does not move around alone at the Wankhede Stadium from Thursday.

Elaborate security arrangements are being made in and around the stadium as Tendulkar will be playing his 200th and final Test match against West Indies.

"As a precautionary measure, we will ensure that Sachin does not move around alone in the stadium. We will try to make sure he moves around with his team members. As it is his last match, a large number of fans may surround him if he is spotted alone," said a senior police official.
