Kolkata: Sep 1, 2013

Sachin Tendulkar might play his 200th Test match on home soil with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) trying to squeeze in a series against the West Indies ahead of the year-end tour of South Africa.

The decision to invite West Indies for two Tests and five one-dayers was taken at the working committee meeting in Kolkata on Sunday.

“We have sent a proposal to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) in this regard. We are hopeful of working out the modalities for the series,” a top BCCI official said.

The series against West Indies will provide Tendulkar a chance to complete the historic milestone of playing 200 Tests in front of home fans.

Mumbai and Kolkata are the likely venues for the much-anticipated matches and the final decision will be taken by the BCCI’s tours and fixtures committee.

This has also raised speculation that Tendulkar may call it quits from the game after this series.

The champion batsman has so far played 198 Tests, scoring 15,837 runs at an average of 53.86. The top run-getter by quite a mile, Tendulkar has scored 51 hundreds in Tests.

Tendulkar, who has retired from One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 Internationals, played 463 50-over games scoring 18,426 runs at an average of 44.83. He struck 49 hundreds in the process.

The BCCI official said the working committee did not have any discussion on the South Africa series, which India need to finalise after rejecting the itinerary proposed by Cricket South Africa (CSA).

The official said the BCCI Annual General Meeting to be held in Chennai on September 29 will be chaired by N Srinivasan, who stepped aside as Board president in the wake of the Indian Premier league (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing controversy.

BCCI interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya will look after the day-to-day functioning of the Board till the AGM.

He also said that the BCCI disciplinary committee will meet in Delhi on September 13 to discuss the Board’s anti-corruption unit chief Ravi Sawani’s report on the spot-fixing controversy.
