Former Indian batting great Sunil Gavaskar turned 68 on Monday. The right-handed batsman scored heaps of runs in his career and notched up a number of records to his name.

He became the first batsman in Test cricket to go past 10000-run mark in the career and was the first Indian cricketer to aggregate a total of more than 700 runs in a series when he smashed 774 runs at an average of 154.80 in 1971 against West Indies. These were also the most runs in a debut series by a batsman.

Here we take a look at how the cricketing fraternity and others have to say on Gavaskar’s special day.
