Sachin Tendulkar & Vinod Kambli have been long-time teammates & friends. Their friendship displayed in 1993 when the duo dressed up in an ethnic Indian wear for a team grouping. Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle also posted a picture of his grouping on social media & asked “How many of you can get all of them?” WV Raman, part of the India team at the time and in the picture, pointed out the players who were missing. “The missing ones are @sachin_rt and @vinodkambli349,” Raman commented on the post.
Tendulkar was quick to notice that he was found missing & revealed his whereabouts with a picture where he is seen posing with Kambli, who is holding an umbrella. The caption in Marathi translated to “We are here.”
The star-studded picture had Raman, Kapil Dev, Navjot Sidhu, Kiran More, Anil Kumble, Venkatpathy Raju, Mohammad Azharuddin among others and all of them were dressed in ethnic Indian wear from their part of the country.
When a journalist inquired about the occasion of such an emphatic coming together of stars, Raman recalled the occasion: “The broadcaster wanted to do an AV for the Independence Day in 1993. We were leaving to SL around June /July.”
