Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar was famous for his impregnable defence and ability to counter hostile fast bowlers of his time without a helmet. However, the ‘little master’, who retired from the game in 1987 after becoming the first Test batsman to surpass 10,000 runs, also showed similar courage to save a family from the clutches of a mob during the 1993 Mumbai riots.

Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar was famous for his impregnable defence and ability to counter hostile fast bowlers of his time without a helmet. However, the ‘little master’, who retired from the game in 1987 after becoming the first Test batsman to surpass 10,000 runs, also showed similar courage to save a family from the clutches of a mob during the 1993 Mumbai riots.

Sunil Gavaskar’s son, Rohan, narrated the incident where the intervention saved the family from harm and provided a lesson in his own life.

“Another one of his characteristics is courage. I got to say there was an incident in 1993 after the bomb blasts, which left a real impact on me.
