Each school/college will be allotted a maximum 15 passes for the said match," a media release from MCA stated.

"The Association has also planned a series of events, including interaction with former and current Indian cricketers during the breaks, to enable spectators to meet and talk to them," the release added.

Mumbai is hosting a Test match after a three-year gap, the last one being Sachin Tendulkar's farewell game against the West Indies in November, 2013.

India lead England 2-0 in the five-game Test series with the final match scheduled to be held at Chennai's M A Chidambaram Stadium from December 16-20.
