Madhuri Dixit has always been known to be a Sunny Gavaskar fan. This was quite evident when she recently made a statement about him. Not long ago, an old video surfaced where Madhuri confessed her love for the master. She was just 23 years old at the time of interview while Gavaskar was 41.
“I’m mad for Sunil Gavaskar. He is too s*xy. I want to run behind him and he even came in my dream. I have seen him playing cricket for India and I like so much.” She was quoted as saying in the video.
Sunil Gavaskar in his days was regarded as the greatest batsman in world cricket. Having scored above 10000 runs in Test cricket, he was the highest run-scorer in the longer format before being eclipsed by Sachin Tendulkar. He even had 34 centuries to his name.
The man has been known for being the backbone of Indian batting for decades. While his numbers in the limited overs format weren’t great, it was his authority in the test format he was renowned for. The legendary hung his boots during 1987 with a sumptuous batting average of 51.12. He’s currently commentating in the IPL and is a regular feature in the comm box.
