The October 29 day-night match was originally allotted to Wankhede Stadium managed by the Mumbai Cricket Association, but was later shifted to Brabourne Stadium, as the city cricket body cited financial constraints in hosting the game.

Tendulkar has “consented to `Ring the Bell’ to inaugurate the 4th ODI”, said CCI, which manages Brabourne Stadium.

It was striving to make the game “a unique experience not only for the cricketers of both the teams but for the cricket crazy Mumbaikars as well,” the CCI said.

It also said that the pitch was expected to result in a “high-scoring” match.

International cricket is returning to Brabourne Stadium after nine years. It had last hosted a Test match in 2009 when India took on Sri Lanka. It had hosted an ODI last in 2006.

Usually practise matches of the international visiting teams are held at the CCI.
