Every child in the country knows about Sachin Tendulkar, but few people will remember his childhood friend Vinod Kambli. Kambli had the same talent as Sachin. Tendulkar and Kambli shared a record 664-run partnership in their school cricket, which is a world record for almost 30 years. It was only after this partnership that the eyes of the world were fixed on Sachin and Kambli. However, Tendulkar soon got a chance to play an international match when Kambli had to wait a bit.
Went to the bathroom Lota: Vinod Kambli, who scored two consecutive double centuries in Test cricket, is a free-thinking person in real life. He had said in an interview that even when he made his place in the Indian cricket team and toured many countries, he used to walk in Mumbai. The Chola had a common bathroom where people used to stand in line every morning to go to the toilet.
Vinod Kambli was also in this queue. He started waiting for his turn with the lota. However, when Kambli became famous as a cricketer, he got rid of this line and let people go before people saw it, but still he followed the rules of the trick and stayed in the line of lotta.
Going Scooty to play matches: Kambli said in his interview that whenever there was a match in Mumbai, Indian team’s star players Kapil Dev, Azharuddin and Sachin Tendulkar would call Taj Hotel sitting in their expensive and luxury cars.
Gateman. Asked to park the key. At that time Kambli had a white colored Kinetic Honda Scooty. From there he would go to the Taj Hotel and give the key to the gateman and ask my scooty to park between these cars. Not only this, he was returning after the match.
Shortly after his expulsion from the cricket team, differences broke out between Kambli and Sachin. In an interview given to a news channel, Kambli said that if Sachin wanted, he could not have been removed from the team, but Sachin did not make any recommendation for him from the board. After the matter came to the fore in the media, there were also reports of a rift between the two and it was heard that the conversation between the two has come to a complete standstill. However, after some time everything went well between the two.
Vinod Kambli, who scored 1084 runs in 17 Tests and 2477 runs in 104 ODIs, was undoubtedly a great batsman but he did not do justice to his talent, which is why the cricket board dropped him for giving opportunities to new players. , Although Kambli tried to make a comeback but by then players like Yuvraj, Kaif had cemented their place in the team. However, Kambli will always be remembered for his brilliant cricket.
