The Indian board (BCCI) has confirmed that Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium will play host to Sachin Tendulkar's 200th and final Test in November.

Eden Gardens in Kolkata will hold the first Test between India and the West Indies between 6th and 10th November before Tendulkar's home ground in Mumbai plays host to the second game between 14th and 18th November.

Although the dates for the series had been revealed in advance, the venues had not been selected, leading to plenty of speculation surrounding where Tendulkar would play his final Test.

Now, he will get the opportunity to bow out in front of his adoring home crowd.

Before that, however, the BCCI have confirmed that the tourist will play a three-day game in Cuttack from 28th to 30th October and that Kochi, Vishakapatnam and either Baroda or Kanpur will host the One-Day Internationals that follow the two-Test series.
