Sunil Gavaskar Turns 75 :Tendulkar pens emotional note, ‘Indian cricket owes…’

Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday extended birthday wishes to batting legend Sunil Gavaskar as he turned 75, and penned an emotional note.

The master-blaster hailed Gavaskar as one of his special heroes, and prayed for for his long and healthy life while sharing a photo of them together from early years.

“The more batters spend time at the crease, the more free-flowing they become. You are no different. You are becoming younger and more energetic by the day!,” said Tendulkar in a post on X.

To see you being as involved and as enthusiastic today about cricket, reflects how much you love the game, said Tendulkar, adding, “When an opener sets a good foundation, it becomes easy for rest of the batting order. We all were inspired by you, and in turn were able to inspire the next generation.”

“Indian cricket owes a lot for your services, may you continue being involved with our beautiful game. Happy birthday and I’ll see you soon!,” added Tendulkar.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah also wished Gavaskar in a post on X.

“Happy Birthday, Sunil Gavaskar! Your batting technique was so perfect that you could play aggressively and defensively with equal ease. Best wishes for everything and have a wonderful year ahead!” wrote Jay Shah.
