Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Ravi Shastri and Sachin Tendulkar were by Prime Minister Narendra D Modi'S side as he laid the foundation stone for a cricket stadium in Varanasi, his Lok Sabha constituency.

Before the inaugural ceremony for the stadium, which will be complete by 2025, the retired cricketers worshipped at the Kashi Vishwanath temple.
