Former Indian captain and the member of the World Cup winning squad of 1983 Sunil Gavaskar will be awarded with the most prestigious Col CK Nayudu Lifetime Achievement award at the annual BCCI awards function.
The BCCI Committee for Col CK Nayudu Lifetime Achievement award decided to honour its one of the best opener of the Indian Cricket history. The award comprises a trophy, citation and a cheque for Rs 25 lakh. Gavaskar will receive the honour at the BCCI Awards Ceremony, to be held shortly.
Truly The “Little Master”:-
The former Padma Bhushan Accolade holder is vastly known for the values and the respect he has gained internationally for Indian Cricket. Gavaskar as a skipper guided India not only to many great victories but also taught moral values of professionalism to his team mates. He is the true masterpiece of the classic shots and techniques. An adorable defence and a good fielding style at the slip are enough to include him in the all time master’s squad of cricket.
Sunil Gavaskar is a show piece of a solid and consistent performance in the batting style for India. May be the records made by him are recorded in the Wisden within few pages but the vast contribution to Indian Cricket can’t be quoted by the word from any language or dictionary in the world. He is a remarkable class of his own type.
