As the teams from Mumbai and Haryana clash at the relatively new Chaudhary Bansi Lal cricket stadium at Lahli village, 10 km from Rohtak (80 km from New Delhi), starting Sunday (October 27), the main attraction for people will be the presence of batting legend Sachin Tendulkar.

The occasion seems important if the whispers in and around the ground are to be believed — that this could be Tendulkar’s last appearance in national-level domestic match before he plays his 200th and last Test match against the West Indies at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium next month.

To see the batting maestro play here, hundreds of enthusiasts — from common villagers, youth, cricket lovers to influential people — everyone is clamouring for tickets for this match.
