Former Indian cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli are known to be best friends in the cricketing circle. Their bonhomie dates back to their childhood days in Mumbai where they played for the same school and represented their club sides at the age group levels together. On January 18, 2018, Vinod Kambli turned 46. On the occasion of his birthday, Kambli received a very special birthday message from his childhood friend Sachin Tendulkar.
Tendulkar took to micro-blogging site Twitter to share a special birthday message for Kambli. In his tweet, he wished all the happiness for his friend. And he hoped that Kambli lives on for many more years to come and the years be filled with a lot of days. The fans absolutely loved the way Sachin posted a lovely tweet for his friend and the tweet garnered quite a lot of attention.
Sachin Tendulkar also added a couple of pictures along with his tweet. In one of the pictures, young Sachin and Kambli are seen all smiles. In the other picture, which is the more candid one, the two former cricketers are seen sharing a jovial moment together.
Here is what Sachin Tendulkar tweeted on Kambli’s birthday:
“Tum jiyo hazaaron saal aur saal ke din ho hazaar. Wishing you a very happy birthday, @vinodkambli349,” Sachin Tendulkar wrote.

It is worth noting that the friendship of Sachin and Kambli has seen a lot of ups and downs. The two had started playing cricketer together in Mumbai. Playing for the Sharda Vidya Ashram school, they had posted a record partnership in inter-school cricket back then. Soon, both cricketers went on to play for team India together.
While Kambli failed to hold on to his place in the Indian side, Sachin went on to become one of the legendary cricketers of all time. Later, the two were reportedly out of contact with Kambli being unhappy with lack of support from Sachin in his testing times. However, all the rumors were brushed aside when the two cricketers cleared the air about such speculations.
