  • Sunil Gavaskar
    Sunil Manohar "Sunny" Gavaskar About this sound pronunciation  (born 10 July 1949) is a former cricketer who played during the 1970s and 1980s for the Bombay cricket team and India. Widely regarded as one of the greatest opening batsmen in cricket history, Gavaskar set world records during his career for the most Test runs and most Test centuries scored by any batsman. He held the record of 34 Test centuries for almost two decades before it was broken by Sachin Tendulkar in December 2005.
    Gavaskar was widely admired for his technique against fast bowling, with a particularly high average of 65.45 against the West Indies, who possessed a four-pronged fast bowling attack regarded as the most vicious in Test history. His captaincy of the Indian team, however, was less successful. The team at one stage went 31 Test matches without a victory. There were incidents like crowd displeasure at Eden Gardens in Calcutta leading to multiple matches being disrupted, in response to the poor performance of the Indian team. Turbulent performances of the team led to multiple exchanges of captaincy between Gavaskar and Kapil Dev, with one of Gavaskar's sackings coming just six months before Kapil led India to victory at the 1983 Cricket World Cup.
    In 2012 Gavaskar was awarded the Col CK Nayudu Lifetime Achievement Award for Cricket in India.
    On 28 March 2014, Supreme Court of India, appointed Gavaskar as the Interim BCCI President primarily to oversee 7th Season of Indian Premier League. The Court also directed him to relinquish his job as a Cricket Commentator.

    International Career Ends

    In 1985–86, India toured Australia, playing against a team in a poor form slump. India were unable to capitalise as all three Tests were drawn, but Gavaskar did. He scored an unbeaten 166 in the First Test in Adelaide and 172 in the Third Test in Sydney, ending the series with 352 runs at 117.33. A three Test tour of England saw him score only 185 runs at 30.83, which India won 2–0 despite his unproductivity. In 1986–87, Gavaskar's final season in Test cricket, India faced a long season of eleven home Tests. Against a team regarded as the worst to leave Australian shores, Gavaskar made 90 in the second innings of the First Test in Madras, giving India a chance to reach the target of 348, which ended in a tie. He scored 103 in the Third Test to end the series with 205 runs at 51.66. The First Test against Sri Lanka in Kanpur saw Gavaskar's 34th and final Test century of 176. He scored 74 and 5 in the next two Tests as India won the three match series 2–0. The five Test series against arch enemies Pakistan was to be his last. Gavaskar scored 91 in the drawn First Test in Madras before withdrawing from the Second Test in Calcutta as he had promised. In the Fourth Test in Ahmedabad, Gavaskar's 63 made him the first batsman to pass 10,000 runs. With the teams locked 0–0 leading into the final Test in Bangalore, there was to be no fairytale. Gavaskar was dismissed for 96 in the second innings as India were bowled out to give Pakistan a 1–0 series win.

  • Sachin Tendulkar
    Sachin Tendulkar can unquestionably be called the 'face of modern cricket'. He follows Don Bradman and Viv Richards as his generation's most successful batsman. The only close competitors Tendulkar faced were Brian Lara and, in more recent times, Ricky Ponting. Statistically, while Bradman scaled unreachable heights, Tendulkar, by his sheer consistency in longevity, marked his area with expansive width that shall, like the Australian great, probably never be conquered.

    -Early and personal life:
     
    Tendulkar was born into a Rajapur Saraswat Brahmin family,Mumbai.His mother Rajni worked in the insurance industry,and his father Ramesh Tendulkar, a Marathi novelist, named Tendulkar after his favourite music director, Sachin Dev Burman. Tendulkar's elder brother Ajit encouraged him to play cricket. Tendulkar has two other siblings: a brother Nitin, and sister Savita.

    on 24 May ,1995 Sachin Tendulkar married Anjali, a paediatrician and daughter of Gujarati industrialist Anand Mehta and British social worker Annabel Mehta. They have two children, Sara (born 12 October 1997), and Arjun (born 24 September 1999). Anjali is six years his senior.

    -Cricket career:

    A genius without a doubt, this little master made his International debut in ODI’s and Tests at the age of 16 against Pakistan against the fiery pace of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. He then went to England as a part of the national side, and has not looked back ever since. The name itself strikes terror in the hearts of bowlers all around the world. Hailed as the next master-blaster following the legacy of the great West Indian Vivian Richards, this man has every shot in the book, and can kill any attack in the world when in full swing. There is nothing this man cannot do.

    In batting, he has reached a stage that others can only dream of. He has destroyed practically every bowling attack in the world. Tendulkar's  'specialties' include the straight drive , the cover drive, the square cut, the pullshot over midwicket/square leg, the delicate leg glance, the late cut, the lofted shots over mid-on and mid-off and not to mention the improvisations he keeps coming up with, time and again. Mentally very strong, Tendulkar is best when confronted by a challenge.

    He made his ODI debut against Pakistan on December 18, 1989. He made his maiden test century (119*) against England at Old Trafford thus becoming the second youngest player to score a test century at the age of 16. Wisden described that innings as one of the disciplined mixed with maturity.

    From there on Tendulkar rose through the ranks and went on to become one of the greatest to have played the game of cricket.

    His maiden ODI century came in his 79th match against Australia on September 9, 1994 in Srilanka. Imagine that and now he is has the highest number of centuries both in tests and ODI. His good form didn’t stopped there as he went on to become the leading run scorer in 1996 world cup.

    Tendulkar achieved his peak form in the year 1998 when he showed his strength and easiness to murder spin attack. He made a mark on Shane Warne and Gavin Robertson mauling them by occasionally dancing down the track and drive over the infield. He scored three consecutive centuries in the series against Australia.

    He again tormented Australia especially Shane Warne in Sharjah with two most unbelievable knocks of his career and helping India win the Sharjah Cup. He scored two back to back centuries (semifinal and final) as India beat Australia.

    Sachin's hundredth ton:

    Sachin Tendulkar has created history by completing his hundredth ton in international cricket during the Asia Cup match at Mirpur, Bangladesh on march 16. After a long wait,the master has created a record which would be very difficult to break. The long wait of cricket fans all over the world has finally

    The master batsman, who is the highest run-getter in both Tests and ODIs, has amassed 15,470 runs in Tests so far in 188 Test matches. In 453 ODIs, he scored more than 18,000 runs.

        * Arjuna Award, 1994
        * Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna 1997
