Chris Gayle was seen batting for long hours in the nets and also being a part of various warm-up exercises.
The BCCI's Programmes and Fixtures committee, headed by Rajeev Shukla, met on Tuesday to chalk out the detailed schedule of the hastily-arranged series comprising two Tests and three one-dayers.
Shukla said that the committee decided to grant Tendulkar's wish to play his last Test at the venue where he made his debut in first class cricket — the Wankhede Stadium.
The Eden Gardens in Kolkata will host the opening clash of the series from November 6 to 10 and like Wankhede, gets an 'out-of-turn' Test match as according to the BCCI's rotational policy, it was actually Bangalore and Ahmedabad's turn.
