Sunil Gavaskar – The Original Little Master


Regarded as one of the best opening batsmen for the Indian Cricket team, Sunil Gavaskar is a humble man, born in the dream city of Mumbai. Throughout his career as well as in his retirement, Sunil Gavaskar has been a thriving cricketer that the country of India bore. Let’s take a look at some of the moments that truly make Sunil Gavaskar the original ‘Little Master’.

1. The Debut of a Record-holder
With his agility and ability to jump the off-stump as well as his tight technique, Sunil Gavaskar had a dream debut. In his first ever test series against West Indies, Sunil Gavaskar scored 774 runs, highest ever by a debutant as well as highest runs scored by any player in a test series. Both the records still stand tall.
