On the occasion of Sunil Gavaskar’s birthday. Wasim Jaffer paid the ultimate tribute to the Original Little Master. Several others including BCCI, VVS Laxman, etc. also greeted Gavaskar on his special day.

The month of July marks the birthdays of three of Indian cricket’s biggest icons. After MS Dhoni’s birthday on July 7, followed by Sourav Ganguly’s a day later, July 10 is the day when Indian cricket’s original Little Master, Sunil Gavaskar was born.

Today is Gavaskar’s 72nd birthday and tributes begin flowing in from all corners. The BCCI was one of the first to convey its wishes to the legendary former India captain.

He had swag before swag was even a word:

“He had swag before swag was even a word. Happy Birthday to the man who has forgotten more about the game than most of us will ever learn. #SunilGavaskar #Inspiration tweeted the former Indian batsman.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also extended birthday greetings to Gavaskar on the occasion by highlighting some of the numbers of his remarkable career.

Gavaskar’s 774 runs against West Indies still stand as the highest runs by a batsman in a debut series. Earning his India cap in 1971, against the mighty West Indies. Gavaskar hit four centuries and three fifties with a best of 220 and an average of 154.80.

Gavaskar was the first batsman to score centuries in both innings of a Test match thrice. Widely regarded as the best opening batsman of all time, Gavaskar made a career out of scoring runs against tough oppositions, especially against West Indies against whom he averaged 65.45, having scored 13 centuries.

“Many more happy returns of the day to my childhood hero and inspiration, Sunil Gavaskar. He instilled courage and belief in many young Indian batsmen to face the best bowlers in the world fearlessly. Have a great day and year ahead, Sunny Bhai!” Laxman tweeted.
