Sunil Gavaskar : The Legendry Cricketer

This Cricketer needs no introduction. The assest of the Indian cricket team, he was a player who was ready to take on the world, gutsy, brave and a master in his own right. Sunil "Sunny" Gavaskar is a record-setting batsman and a national hero to India's cricket fans. Born on 10th July’1949 Gavaskar changed the face of Indian cricket. In the 1980s Gavaskar, sometimes called "The Little Master" (he's 5' 4"), dominated Indian cricket and became famous for his meticulous approach as well as his distinctive headgear.

On The Pitch:
He was the first cricketer to make 10, 000 runs and his record of 34 test centuries still stands untouched. The fact that Sunny went on to score 10,000 runs is a tribute to the man’s enormous talent. His amazing concentration was the key to his success

Gavaskar's 221 at the Oval in 1979 were one of the best innings ever played by any batsman, particularly bearing in mind the important fact that India started their second innings in the seemingly impossible position of needing 438 runs in 500 minutes to win. Gavaskar was by far the best batsman of either side in the series - and England had Boycott, Gooch and Gower.

Gavaskar's batting records are amazing by any standards. Apart from being the first to score 10,000 runs in Tests, he had set the record of 774 runs at an average of 154.8, the highest for any batsman in his debut series.

Sunil GavaskarThere were two more remarkable innings, his 71 in the second innings of the Christchurch Test of 1976, which contained three hours of disciplined batsmanship which was ended by Howarth's superb catch in the gully. The second knock of 107 in the December Test of 1978 in Calcutta against the West Indies.

And finally there was the masterly innings of 96 on a turning track against Pakistan in the Bangalore Test of 1987, which dispelled any doubts about his ability to deal with spin on a receptive wicket.

Goodbye to the Game
Gavaskar arrived at the highest level just when India needed someone of caliber to sustain the batting. He said farewell to the game with a century in the Biennial Test of August 1987 at that holy of holies, Lord's, to secure the only distinction that had thus far eluded him.
