It was vintage Sachin Tendulkar on display at the DY Pati Stadium ahead of the IPL Finals. Sachin and Vinod Kambli took time off during lunch break and started playing cricket with each other. It must have felt like Shivaji Park, the place from where it incepted for them. First, it was Kambli rolling his arms over and the Tendulkar took the bat and played some trademark shots. He played the straight drive, the cover drive and also the on-drive. Tendulkar captioned the video as, “Felt great to be back in the nets with @vinodkambli2016 during the @tendulkarmga lunch break! It sure took us back to our childhood days at Shivaji Park…Very few people know that Vinod & I have always been in the same team and never played against each other.”

It is interesting to see Tendulkar also mentioned that they have never played against each other. The duo of Tendulkar and Kambli made headlines as teenagers when they scored the world record partnership playing the Haris Shield. The friendship goes back three decades and it seems to get better with time. The two have immense mutual respect for one another and that is evident in the way they wish each other during their birthdays.
