With the stage set for what could be another milestone by Sachin Tendulkar today, those who failed to get their hands on the tickets for the Test match share their plans on how they intend to catch his stay at the crease
I have made sure that I don’t have to go to office tomorrow and will be working from home to see Sachin bat. I just can’t afford to miss seeing him play.

My school friends, who have grown up watching him play, have decided to gather at my place and watch the GOD of cricket make a century.

Fortunately, it is a holiday tomorrow as I have a day off. Therefore, I plan to stay in front of the television for as long as he stays at the crease.

It’s not a holiday for me, since I have my own business. However, I will watch the match in office over the Internet.

Even though I have exams scheduled over the next few days, I will set aside some time to watch him play on TV since I cannot go to the stadium.

I have already planned to give the festivities a miss, and will sit in front of the television to watch the master blaster play his last game.
-- Asim Momin (23), Dongri
The occasion will be a get together for my friends and me at my house. He’s an icon for all of us and his last match is special for us.

I am excited to see the God of cricket bat tomorrow and will make sure that even if I have stepped out for work, I have my iPad with me so that I am updated on the scores.

I will be glued to television the entire day to see him play. Even though it’s his last Test match, he knows people have high expectations. He and Cheteshwar Pujara have ended the day well.
