Kambli on Sachin: I don't know if there is any friendship left

“I wish he could have taken my name in his speech because I was expecting him to at least mention our world record partnership because it was from there that we started... it was a career-changing innings. I was definitely hurt,” Kambli was quoted as saying to NDTV yesterday.

“We shared everything, we grew up together and we learnt from each other. There were frequent comparisons — who was a better hitter of the ball — but we didn’t care.

“When he made the speech all the things were coming in front of my eyes and even when he had tears in his eyes, I couldn’t control mine. The way he has served the country, I salute him.

“I don’t know if there is any friendship left,” Kambli said. The maverick southpaw said in a 2009 television programme that Tendulkar did not help him in his dark days.
