Sunil Gavaskar, former India captain and opener, is celebrating his 72nd birthday today. Gavaskar was one of the few batsmen in the world to face the dangerous West Indies attack in the 1970s and 1980s. Gavaskar is currently interpreting Sky Sports in England. On Friday, Gavaskar and Indian wicketkeeper batsman Dinesh Karthik arrived to watch the Vivaldan Tennis Tournament. Karthik shared a photo of him with Gavaskar on social media, which Gavaskar’s son Rohan Gavaskar enjoyed.
Commenting on the photo shared by Kartik, Rohan said, “When Dinesh Karthik made his debut for the Indian team, he changed me for the XI against England. Now they have replaced me at Wimbledon. Hope you guys have eaten strawberries and cream intensely.
When DK debuted for India, he took my place in 11 matches against England. He has now taken my place at Wimbledon. You guys have some strawberries and cream and wash it off with some pimps, buddy. https://t.co/4xyLEWNN9a
