Former Indian cricketer, Vinod Kambli celebrated his 45th birthday on Thursday and thanked all his fans and well-wishers for all the wishes. Many of his fans and followers on social media wished him on various platforms but one wish from his beloved friend Sachin Tendulkar was special.
The former India cricketer’s birthday saw a legendary cricketer send a wish to him and then he also celebrated Kambli’s birthday by cutting a cake with the Mumbai cricketer.

Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar wished his childhood friend Kambli on his birthday. The Master Blaster’s wish was special for the cricketer because both began playing cricket together and both were friends since then. But that relation between the best of friends got a bit bitter when Vinod was dropped from the Indian cricket team in the final decade of last century.
Kambli was always the classic larrikin, with his golden earrings, funky haircuts (although the pate is now bald) and lavish lifestyle. Maybe Kambli was ahead of his time because he might have suited in nicely in the tolerant surpluses of the Indian Premier League now.
Currently, it seems that everything is right back on the track with both sharing greetings and wishes. Sachin posted a message on his Twitter and Instagram handles for Kambli, wishing him long life. He tweeted, “Tum jiyo hazaaron saal aur saal ke din ho hazaar. Wishing you a very happy birthday, @vinodkambli2016″.
