One is the first batsman to cross 10,000 Test runs; the other 12,000. One is from Dadar; the other from Bandra. CNN-IBN's editor-in-chief Rajdeep Sardesai got the two little masters together in probably their first interview together.
Rajdeep Sardesai: I have with me the two legends of the game, the world's 12,000 Test run man, and the first 10,000 man of the game, a staggering 22,000 runs between my two guests today, the one and only Sunil Gavaskar and the one and only Sachin Tendulkar. If I go by the statistics, do you know how many centuries you have scored between the two of you in International cricket? Who has a better mathematical mind? Mr. Gavaskar, you would usually know how many hundreds have been scored?
Sunil Manohar Gavaskar: No, I am not Geoffrey Boycott here.
Sardesai: You have scored more than a 100 hundreds between the two of you, if you include Test cricket and one day internationals, but Sachin, 12,000 runs, has it sunk in? What does it mean to have scored 12,000 test runs?...
