The highly anticipated match will take place Thursday at 9:30 IST, with fans across the world tuning in to see Tendulkar play in his 200th match.
Tickets to the match are almost out of the question for the average fan. All but a few thousand have been scooped up before the general buying public had a chance, and when a few thousand tickets went on sale this week on KyaZoonga the site was overwhelmed with 19 million hits in the first few minutes.
Thousands more people looking for tickets to the India vs. West Indies cricket test flocked to Wankhede Stadium, only to find that tickets were only being sold online. Police had to be called to disperse the unruly crowd.
Even if they could find tickets to watch India vs. West Indies live in person, it wouldn’t come cheap. Tickets that were originally on sale for 1,500 rupees ($24) are selling on the black market for 60,000 rupees ($950).
But luckily fans can watch the India vs. West Indies match live online through Sky Sports.
For fans watching on the internet, it will be the last chance to watch Sachin Tendulkar, who has broken nearly every cricket record during his 25-year career.
The 40-year-old said it was a difficult decision to leave the sport.
“It’s hard for me to imagine a life without playing cricket because it’s all I have ever done since I was 11 years old,” he said in announcing his retirement.
India won the first test against West Indies last week.
