Wishful thinking. Anyway many happy returns of the day, Thanks for all the great knocks. One thing we have in common is we both like AB. Ciao

Name:PUSHPAK SARKAR
Message:Happy Birthday Mr Gavaskar! You are the greatest! Sir, with all apologies,I am afraid this is an unabashed , nostalgic eulogy of yourself -my childhood 'IDOL' . Kids of this generation cannot understand how much India relied on you in the 1970/80s to save the Indian batting order from many a precarious situation -in West Indies 1971 & 1976, Oval Test 1979.... Even in what turned out to be your last test at Bangalore in 1986/7 (against Pakistan) you played a priceless 96! Considering the strength at your disposal , you were also a successful captain! Victories in World Cup at Australia in 1985 and the Melbourne Test 1981 stand out! Most importantly, your love for Indian cricket was so exemplary that you even refused to join Packer series and forego millions of dollars as earnings! It is sad that we dont see this kind of patriotism anymore(in fact the matchfixing episode proves that in 1990s even the Indian Captain can ...) I pray to the Almighty that you have a long and productive an innings in life ... and yes, thanks for all those great memories!
