Two days after his emotional farewell, former India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar is set to host a big bash on Monday, celebrating his retirement at the Waterstone Club in Andheri, Mumbai.

The party was scheduled on November 18, officially expected to be the last day of his 200th and final Test at Wankhede Stadium in the city. However, India trounced the West Indies sealing a win inside three days in the second Test of the series.
 
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the early finish meant that some of the Indian players will miss the party. Cheteshwar Pujara, Ishant Sharma and one more player will not attend the bash while rest of the players will be present.

The invites, personally sent out by Anjali will include a host of celebrities from Bollywood and sports fraternity. Even the West Indian team and cricket legend Brian Lara will be present.
 
Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Tendulkar’s friends from Shardashram Vidyamandir, Mumbai Indians’ owner Mukesh Ambani are expected to be present at the party.
 
Tendulkar bid adieu to international cricket on Saturday after completing his 200 Tests. His emotional farewell speech left many in tears as the legend walked away into sunset.
