Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is to provide free passes for school and college students to watch the India-England fourth and penultimate Test match to be held at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai from December 8-12. "The passes will be issued against a letter from the school/college signed by the Principal on first come first serve basis. Each school/college will be allotted a maximum 15 passes for the said match," said a media release from MCA on Friday.
"The Association has also planned a series of events, including interaction with former and current Indian cricketers during the breaks, to enable spectators to meet and talk to them," the release added. Mumbai is hosting a Test match after a three-year gap, the last one being Sachin Tendulkar's farewell game against the West Indies in November, 2013.
India lead England 2-0 in the five-game Test series with the final match scheduled to be held at Chennai's M A Chidambaram Stadium from December 16-20.
