HIGH DEMAND: The HINDUSTAN TIMES reported as fans are "frantically looking" to book a seat to watch Tendulkar play the 200th and final Test of his career at Mumbai's Wankhede stadium, KyaZoonga.com, the website selling 5,000 tickets, "crashed on Monday as tickets went on sale at 11am." KyaZoonga was "appointed the official ticketing partner for the second Test" between India and West Indies, which will begin on Thursday, by the Mumbai Cricket Association (HINDUSTAN TIMES, 11/11). The PTI reported the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association on Monday announced that "it will pay tribute to the legendary batsman by dedicating a museum to him in the HPCA premises." HPCA President Anurag Thakur said, “It is a small tribute by the cricket association to the greatest son of Indian cricket, who has inspired generations of cricketers across the world.” The museum "would have the details of Indian cricketing history and the players who have contributed to the development or brought glory to the country" (PTI, 11/11).
IN PROTEST: IANS also reported "scores of activists" of Aam Aadmi Party protested outside the Mumbai Cricket Association's Kandivli Club, which was on Monday renamed to honor Tendulkar.

He said a delegation of AAP went to Tendulkar's Bandra residence Monday morning urging him "not to give his name or associate himself in any manner with a corrupt body like MCA" (IANS, 11/11).
