Sachin recently made his commentary debut in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Fans were ecstatic to see their favourite player behind the mic. Whenever Sachin took to the mic and visited the commentary box, #SachinOpensAgain used to trend on Twitter and social media. Sachin once again graced the ENG vs AUS match at Lord's and met seasoned commentator Sunil Gavaskar, which is when he took this picture.
June 25, 1983, is etched in every Indian cricket team fans mind. On that very day, India lifted its maiden Cricket World Cup. In fact, India became the second team after West Indies to win the World Cup. West Indies won the first two editions, 1975 and 1979, but interestingly lost to India in the final of 1983 World Cup at the iconic Lord’s cricket ground in London. Apparently, the win helped India gain an identity on the world stage and the team never looked back.
