On the occasion of friendship day, former India legend Sachin Tendulkar posted a video with his childhood friend and cricketing partner, Vinod Kambli. The video shows both the former cricketers playing a video game and having a casual banter. The video has been retweeted for more that 12 thousand times and it has created a buzz on social media. 

Earlier, India's greatest ever batsman shared a childhood picture of him with Kambli, captioning 'Kamblya, found this photo of ours from our school days. Memories came rushing back and thought of sharing this.

Kambli who was quick to respond, tweeted, "This brought back memories, Master! You remember this one time when we were batting & a kite fell on the pitch. I took the kite & started flying it.You saw Achrekar Sir coming my way but didn’t tell me and we both know what happened next!"

Tendulkar, who is rated as one of the greats the game of cricket has ever produced, made his debut at an early age of 16.  He played 463 ODIs, 200 Tests and a sole T20I, he scored 18, 426 and 15, 921 runs respectively. 

Kambli, on the other hand, played 104 ODIs for India and scored 2477 runs while he amassed 1084 runs in 17 Tests at an average of 54.2.

Tendulkar-Kambli friendship dates back to 1988 when both the cricketers hogged the limelight while playing for Shardashram Vidya Mandir against St. Xavier's in Harris Shield and sharing a mammoth partnership of 664-runs on February 24. Both Tendulakar and Kambli got training under coach Ramakant Achrekar and were schoolmates.

The duo of Kambli and Tendulkar keeps giving something to the Indian fans to cheer by posting photos and exchanging tweets time to time.
