Not getting ticket for Wankhede For Sachin Tendulkar’s Last Test Match, No worries!!!
The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is in talks with its ‘neighbour’, the Mumbai Hockey Association (MHA), to accommodate a few thousand fans at the MHA-Mahindra Stadium during Sachin Tendulkar’s 200th and final Test match at the Wankhede next month.
“The idea is to erect a giant screen at the hockey stadium. Not everybody will manage to get a ticket. So the MCA hopes to seat fans at the adjacent venue. We will soon send a proposal to the hockey association,” an MCA insider said.
Rathore, however, made it clear that the MHA will not tolerate any damage to the astroturf.
“We will not allow them to place chairs on the playing surface. They may seat the fans in our stands which can hold about 6,000 spectators. The giant screen may be placed near the electronic scoreboard,” he said.
But the Mumbai Police was not too keen on providing security at the hockey stadium. Truth is no policeman was willing to watch the game on the giant screen. Everyone wanted to watch it live,” the official laughed, before adding, “but this time we hope to convince the police department to accept our request.”
