During his playing days, he used to be often referred to as the ‘Record-breaking Gavaskar’ or the ‘Century Man’, for Sunil Manohar Gavaskar simply loved to pile up the runs. On his 60th birthday, his admirers join hands to present him with a unique ‘century’ in the form of this book that contains 100 articles on the Little Master.
In its 132-year history, Test match cricket has produced some great cricketers and even greater characters. Some of these wonderful cricketers share their personal experiences of having played the game alongside or against Sunil Gavaskar. This book is a tribute to the living legend, a person we all love and admire.
Debasish Datta’s passion for cricket can only be compared to Sunil Gavaskar’s hunger for runs. He met Gavaskar for the first time in 1978 and this unique partnership continues to flower.
