Virender Sehwag's 100th test. Sachin Tendulkar in his home ground. And Cheteshwar Pujara, who might be a combination of both Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman.
For any cricket fan, no, Test cricket fan, this has to be ample reason to abandon drawing room viewing and book tickets to see a Test match at Wankhede in Mumbai. It was reason enough for me. The second India-England Test was in Mumbai.
And there the process began. I called the ground a number of times, asked friends - but was told unequivocally that this isn't the IPL, ticket information will come out only a week before the match. And so three days before, we bought tickets, also to be told that one can't choose seats -- take the seats you get. And, there are no per day tickets -- if you want to watch one day's play, pay for all five. No choice, get the drift?
