Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli are back to being friends

Tendulkar and Kambli: Beginning the cricketing journey together
Childhood buddies
  • Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli, burst onto the Indian domestic cricketing scene together as youngsters.
  • The two childhood friends first garnered attention with their unbeaten 664 partnership during a school match in 1998.
  • Eventually they both played for India. While Sachin is revered as the "God of Cricket", Kambli, considered more talented of the two, failed to live up to the expectations.

  • Kambli's career goes down-spiral
    Short-lived career
  • Out of the two, Sachin was the first to debut for India as a 16-year-old in a Test match against Pakistan in Nov'89. Kambli debuted in an ODI against Pakistan in Oct'91.
  • Kambli's career was, however, short-lived, having played only 17 Tests where he scored 1084 runs. He was part of 97 ODI innings and has a total of 2477 runs to his name.

  • Sachin joins the greatest batsmen list
    Career in numbers
  • While the myriad records of the Little Master are extensive in number, we stick to the ODI and Test career summary.
  • Sachin had been involved in as many as 200 Test matches scoring 15,921 runs in the process, including 51 centuries and 6 double centuries. He played 452 ODI innings and amassed 18,426 runs, which include 49 tons, and one double ton.

  • Last internationals
    Kambli last played an international match in Oct 2000, ODI against Sri Lanka. Sachin played his last international, a Test against West Indies in Nov 2013.

    Rift in the friendship
    Kambli's outburst
  • Eight years ago, in a 2009 TV show, Vinod Kambli replying to a question about his friendship with Sachin said, "We are very close...we were very close. He could have done a little more, but he didn't."
  • This soured the relationship between the two to the extent that Sachin did not invite Kambli to his final Test at Wankhede in 2013.

  • Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli are back to being friends
    26 Oct 2017
  • Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli seem to have buried the hatchet after the latter's explosive interview in 2009, which turned their friendship sour.
  • Everything is fine and any bitterness between the two is now "forgotten" according to Kambli who said,"We hugged each other. We want to tell people that we're back."
  • The two recently met at a book launch event in Mumbai.
