A NOTE from one Skandakumar in UVA
This is the outcome when talent and opportunities are combined with discipline and hard work. Vinod Kambli and Sachin Tendulkar started together.
If my memory serves me right, the left handed Kambli had an equally impressive start to his career, but coming from a far less fortunate background, it was a pity he did not have a good mentor. The mental challenges and the physical stress gave way to alcohol and Kambli lost his way and eventually faded away.A lesson for our talented and errant cricketers , particularly the recently suspended ones of what is possible and what is not……..SS
