Contemporaries - Today vs Yesteryear

Just as Kumble surpassed Kapil to become the leading Indain wicket taker in Tests, Sachin is eyeing to push Gavaskar down in the batting department. While this is a moment of pride for the younger duo, no credit can be taken away from their seniors. Sure; Sachin and Kumble are inspirational role models for the Indian youth. But they are nowhere close to what Sunny and Paji achieved. Together they can stake the claim of putting India in the World Cricketing map. They are the sole creators of the madness with which cricket is being followed in the subcontinent.
