Sachin Tendulkar, Vinod Kambli Finally Meet…
Eight years ago, Kambli criticised Tendulkar on a TV show claiming the latter did not help him during the tumultuous phase of his life.
Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli’s story is part of Indian cricket folklore. The duo grabbed headlines when they stitched together a 664-run stand during a school match in 1988.
The two Mumbai stars rose through junior cricket ranks and made it to the Indian team. While Tendulkar took giant strides in the cricketing world, Kambli failed to maintain his form and consistency.
Their contrasting fortunes on the field played a role in hampering their equation off it. Eight years ago, Kambli criticised Tendulkar on a TV show claiming the latter did not help him during the a tumultuous phase of his life.
As a result, Kambli was neither invited to Tendulkar’s farewell Test nor found a mention in he latter’s autobiography. In a sense, that signaled the end of their famed friendship.
Tendulkar and Kambli were spotted together at a recent book launch in Mumbai.
