Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli who made a name for themselves right from their childhood due to their extraordinary cricket skills have been buddies since school days. They spent their formative years in Sharadashram Vidyamandir, learning cricket together, later played domestic and international cricket together. Even before donning the glorious blue of Indian jersey, they had already immortalized their friendship in the grime whites of Mumbai’s Azad Maidan.
Under Ramakant Achrekar, both started playing the game together, started living the game together. However, they did not limit their relationship to the nets and greens of Azad Maidan and instead chose it to eternize in the record books. In 1988 the duo scripted a mammoth partnership of 664 runs which was at that time the highest ever partnership for any wicket in any class of cricket worldwide. From that moment onwards, their lives changed and their fate took a 180-degree turn. But two things have remained constant throughout, their adoration and respect towards each other and they have served the main reason for their friendship to continue to blossom.
The partnership between Tendya and Kamblya is never meant to be broken and here are a few BFF moments of this Mumbaikar duo.
