Two former Indian cricketers who grew up in the same city, played for the same state and went on to play for the nation together shared fond memories of each other on Twitter, as Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar shared a picture of Vinod Kambli and himself from their teenage years.
The ICC Hall of Famer took to Twitter to share an image with his friend and former Indian teammate Vinod Kambli. The picture could easily be from almost three decades ago, and in his tweet, the 'Little Master' addressed his friend as Kamblya and said that he had found the photo of themselves during their school days. He said that there was a strong sense of nostalgia as he saw the picture.
Here's the picture shared by Tendulkar:
Former Indian cricketer and a close friend of the Master Blaster Vinod Kambli responded very affectionately to the former's tweet and said that he had brought back many memories by sharing the picture. He went on to recall an incident during their teens when they were practicing cricket and a kite fell in front of them following which Kambli spotted the kite and flew it. The Master Blaster had then seen their coach Achrekar coming their way but did not warn Kambli about it. Kambli said that both of them knew what happened after that.

Vinod Kambli had earlier congratulated Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar on being inducted into the International Cricket Council's Hall of Fame via a video post on Twitter. Kambli spoke about how Sachin had successfully followed his dream, referring to a photo of bat-wielding Tendulkar from when he was a child. Calling him the 'true Master Blaster', Kambli said that Sachin was truly a legend of the game.
Indian batting icon and Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar had been inducted into the International Cricket Council's Hall of Fame. Speaking at the induction ceremony held in London on Sunday night, the 46-year-old former right-hand batsman said that it is a huge honour for him. Regarded as the greatest to have played the game, Little Master Tendulkar remains the top run-accumulator in both Tests and ODIs.
