His transition from a cricketer to being a critic and a columnist, whom the entire media hankers after, has indeed been a welcome one. As he celebrates his sixtieth birthday, there could bo no better tribute than an anthology of sixty of Sunil Gavaskar's best articles. They reflect the man, and are like him - 'no holds barred'! He minces no words, and says it like it is. He talkes about the great of yesterdays, his heroes that include the late M.L. Jasimha, and Don Bradman amongst others. He talks about what ails the cricketing world and also how the Indian cricket team is truly a force to reckon with.

Sunil Manohar Gavaskar born in 1949, was brought up in Mumbai. He attended St Xavier's college. He inherited his interest in cricket from his parents and uncle, and justified their high hopes when in 1961, at the age of tweleve, he distinguished himself in inter-school tournaments. The college XI, the Irani cup, and the Rani trophy paved the way for this selection in test cricket. In 1971, Gavaskar made his debut in the West Indies where he scored an astounding 774 runs in 4 tests at an average of 154.8. With 34 tests centuries to his credit, Gavaskar surpassed Donald Bradman's thirty-five years old record of 29 tests centuries. He has played 125 tests matches scoring 10,122 runs; 108 one-day matches; and scored 3,092 runs and holds the distinction of captaining India in 47 tests. Gavaskar has been felicitated with the Arjun award in 1975, Padma Bhushanin 1980, and the Maharashtra Bhushan award in 1999. He is a TV commentator for Sharjah, BBC, channel 9 network, ESPN star sports, and Neo sports. He has held several important posts such as the Chairman of ICC cricket committee, and has to his credit four books.
