Going for Sachin's last? Hitch a free ride!

'Smaaash'ing news for Tendulkar fans!

As a tribute to the master blaster, travel website Musafir.com will be offering free cab rides to spectators attending Sachin Tendulkar's (much-hyped) farewell test match at Wankhede Stadium.

of course, there's a fair amount of economics involved. As reported earlier, Tendulkar has recently acquired a minority stake in the online travel agent (OTA). Read the story hereTendulkar will play his 200th test match against West Indies in Mumbai from Nov 14 to Nov 18.

According to reports, Musafir.com will make available 200 TABcabs for fans free of cost during those five days. The rides will be from different junctions of the city to Wankhede Stadium. 

Fans or not, spectators looking to get a free ride will only need to show their match tickets. Still, it remains to be seen whether this will result in chaos or not. Because let's face it, distances in Mumbai are huge.

Having said that, they can be assured of good service from TABcabs. Personally, I much prefer them over Meru. And if you're planning to book one for a ride to the airport on those days, be adequately warned.
