Not every player has a long career. Some drop out of the team in the middle, while others wait for an opportunity. Others make long runs in the team. But now the cricketer who is going to be mentioned is the most talented and expected to surpass Sachin Tendulkar alone. If cut.. then the career is almost closed. Vinod Kambli is not who he is. Today is Vinod Kambli’s birthday on January 18. Born in Mumbai in 1972, Kambli shared a record partnership of 664 runs with Sachin in school cricket. It is known that these two childhood friends represented Team India for a while.
There is a gap of two years between Sachin’s debut and Kambli’s debut. Sachin made his international debut in a Test match against Pakistan in November 1989. Kambli made his debut in an ODI match against the same team in 1991. Kambli’s Test career had a brilliant start. He played his first Test match against England in February 1993 at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata. He scored four centuries in the first seven matches. It includes two double centuries and two centuries. But after this the left-handed batsman gave a flop show with the bat. His Test career is also over. Vinod Kambli, who played a total of 17 Test matches, scored 1084 runs at an average of 54.20. It has three fifties and four centuries.
In his ODI career, Kambli played 104 ODIs for India and scored 2477 runs at an average of 32.59, including two centuries and 14 fifties. Every time he was left out of the team due to indiscipline. Vinod Kambli bid farewell to international cricket after playing his last international match against Sri Lanka in Sharjah.
