SHARJAH: Former India captain and batting legend Sunil Gavaskar was formally inducted into the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Hall of Fame. The 62-year-old was presented the Hall of Fame cap by Kapil Dev, another former India captain, in the presence of ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat. Gavaskar was the first batsman in Test cricket to get 10,000 runs and 30 centuries, finishing with 10,122 runs and 34 hundreds during an illustrious career, which spanned from 1971 to 1987. “This is a huge honour because it is the peers in the game that decide who is going to be inducted,” said Gavaskar.
