A stay in Mumbai could include a day watching a cricketing legend.
Indian holidays are becoming increasingly popular, with many people finding the mix of exotic coastline and thriving urban cities an exciting cocktail.
While staying in one of the major cities, there is no better place to sample the trademark atmosphere than at a cricket match.
It is one of the most popular sports in India with star players often afforded legendary status.
None more so than Sachin Tendulkar who has been named in the probables list for the Mumbai Ranji Trophy squad for the forthcoming 2012-13 domestic season.
The Little Master recently completed his 100th first-class hundred and despite making his international debut at the age of 16, is still one of the world’s best batsmen at the age of 39.
Tendulkar’s status is so elevated in India that he recently became the first sportsman in the country to be made a member of parliament.
