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.

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.
