He was truly a Dabanng for his courage to face bowlers who looked like killing you,without any fear and protective gear. Happy Birthday Sunil Gavaskar.”

Gavaskar didn’t back down from any challenge and was always up for the battle. The former Indian captain had a sound technique and always played the ball under his eyes. Gavaskar carried Indian batting on his shoulders and always led from the front
Happy birthday 🎂😘 sunny paji

The man who took on the most fearsome bowlers in world cricket. That to without the helmet, a sight many a batsman would dread. You were our original little master. Happy birthday sir, Sunil Gavaskar.
