Cricketing legend Sunil Gavaskar joins ‘Midwicket Stories’


Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has joined ‘Midwicket Stories’ as principal advisor. Also known by the nicknames ‘Sunny’ and ‘Little Master’, Gavaskar is among the greatest Indian cricketers to have graced the gentleman’s game. While speaking to media persons, Gavaskar talked about the concept behind ‘Mid-Wicket’ stories and what one can expect from it. “The concept of ‘Midwicket Stories’ is where former players come together and talk about their time, talk about things that happened during their time. There is an anchor who asks the question. The whole idea is that at that particular point of time there was not the kind of availability of putting those stories such like it is there today in the public media. Therefore I think it’s an idea where the audience gets to hear what transpired and what happened there on the field and off the field. It is an entertaining thing because I have been part of two events one in Sydney with Allan Border. Earlier this year in March with Viv Richards,” Gavaskar said while speaking to media persons. Gavaskar is a distinguished member of India’s maiden World Cup winning squad of 1983, Gavaskar once held the record for scoring the most centuries in Tests. The Mumbaikar, who scored more than 10,000 runs in red-ball cricket, brought down the curtains to his career with 45 half-centuries and 34 centuries to his name.
