50th anniversary of Gavaskar's Test debut


50th anniversary of Gavaskar's Test debut
Meanwhile, it is a special day for Indian cricket as batting legend Sunil Gavaskar completes 50 years of his Test debut.
It was exactly 50 years that the Indian batting great had his first taste of Test cricket -- in the second Test against the mighty West Indies at Port of Spain, on March 6, 1971.
"There was elation at finally being able to wear my country's cap. There was nervousness too because we were playing a team led by the greatest, Sir Gary Sobers," recalls Gavaskar about his debut match.
