first_imgPune, Feb 22 (PTI) Batting legend Sunil Gavaskar today said the current Indian team under Virat Kohli was “fulfilling my dreams”. “What Kohli and his boys have done is amazing. Such a run of Test wins is amazing. They are fulfilling my dreams,” said the Little Master. At a program to mark 40th anniversary of his book `Sunny Days, Gavaskar was speaking to former India batsman VVS Laxman at the Sports Literary Festival Xolo Sportale here. Gavaskar, who opened the batting for India, said when Virender Sehwag arrived on the scene, he saw someone was hitting the ball the way he (Gavaskar) always wanted. “I always wanted to hit a straight six on the first ball of a Test match. I could do that only once, but Sehwag did that with regularity. He was a class batsman with guts in his batting,” said Gavaskar. On criticism of T20 format, Gavaskar said, “In fact T20 has done some fantastic things for the sport and in many ways and raised the profile of the game. “T20 offers action all the way through the match, but Test cricket still I believe is the ultimate form to judge a player. T20 has energised One-Day cricket and One-Day cricket in turn has energised Test cricket,” he said. (More) PTI SPK KRKlast_img
