BCCI sources have indicated that that the second Test between India and England will go ahead, as scheduled, in Mumbai. There were concerns that the Test, which starts on Friday, might be moved to Kolkata following the death of the politician and Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray.
England fans heading to Mumbai for the second Test awoke to conjecture that a switch of venues could be considered in the wake of the death of Thackeray, a dominant political figure in the city, as thousands of extra police patrolled the streets to ensure order.
Mumbai was slowly getting back to normal on Monday, after the cremation of Thackeray the previous day, as the Shiv Sena clarified that it had not called for a bandh - a period of inactivity - in his honour.
