Kolkata, Oct 29 (IANS) Cricketing legends Vivian Richards and Shane Warne have been invited for Sachin Tendulkar's 199th and penultimate Test match at the Eden Gardens Nov 6-10 featuring India and West Indies, the Cricket Association of Bengal said Tuesday.

Confirmation is awaited from Richards - considered one of the most destructive batsmen in the history of the game and Warne - rated as the greatest leg spinner, said CAB joint secretary Subir Ganguly.

As part of the celebrations to give Tendulkar a memorable farewell, a tableau would be brought out Nov 3 from the Eden Gardens. It would be adorned with Tendulkar's photographs and posters and go to a number of spots in the city.

The CAB also announced that 199 bunches of sky lanterns would be floated on day three at the Eden Gardens.
