Tendulkar, who played his 199th Test here, will hang up his willow after his 200th match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai (November 14-18).
CAB had initially announced that 199 kg of petals, marking Tendulkar's 199th Test, would be showered from a helicopter.
Later, CAB bosses made a revised plan to shower the petals from three two-seater aircraft either on the fourth or fifth day, after the match ended.
“We had booked the aircraft and taken permission from the air traffic control (ATC) for two days — Saturday and Sunday — for the programme.
But we could not do anything as the match took a sudden turn and dramatically ended today,” CAB joint secretary Subir Ganguly told IANS.
Tendulkar retired from one-day cricket last year.
