For a stable batting line-up, one of the factors that play a major role is a good opening pair. Spending a long time on field, the opening partners become habituated with each others style of play and habits. Sometimes they get in so much sync that they know by instinct what the other is going to do the next moment. This closeness results in a friendship off the field, one of the classic examples of it is the bond shared by Sourav Ganguly, the dada of cricket and Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, the master-blaster. Here are some pictures that depict their friendship-
The very start of the friendship
And went on to become a great partnership
Chilling out off the field officially…
When your buddy scores big…
…and you feel proud
‘I’m ahead’ ‘huh, I’ll win’
‘you sure of the dance moves?’ ‘Yeah just follow your skipper’
‘Don’t worry bro, I’ll give you the last piece of pizza tonight’
When your friend brings the perfect thing to party…
…after you take the much needed wicket for him-
Like skipper, like buddy
My brother bestest!
Divided by teams…
…united by brotherhood
Our families gel well, obviously!
And the world knows how we get along…
When your friend makes fun of your tummy…
…and still feeds you cake !
Together at good times…
…in times of need…
…and in emotional ones.
‘But I still doubt your dancing skills !’
We were friends,
we are friends,
and we will be- FOREVER !
