The former Indian Cricketer Vinod Kambli had a memorable birthday celebration on Thursday. On the birthday eve, he was joined by his childhood friend Sachin Tendulkar along with their close friends to celebrate the special occasion in Mumbai. Kambli, who turned 46 on Thursday, received birthday wishes from his fans across the nation on social media and later expressed his gratitude to them. Albeit his timeline was flooded with wishes, a unique wish from his beloved friend Sachin Tendulkar stood out tall.

The bond between Vinod and Sachin

As friends from their childhood, Kambli and Tendulkar played their club cricket together and represented Mumbai in Ranji Trophy. Both of them performed exceptionally well at the domestic level before cementing their place in the national team. The duo shared a record 664 run partnership in their school cricket match against St. Xavier’s School. But unfortunately, their bond was ruined once Vinod was dropped from the Indian team citing poor performances.
