Mumbai: Former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri on Wednesday, said that ex-captain Sunil Gavaskar remains the best opener he has seen in world cricket.
Shastri paid the 'little master' glorious tributes after Gavaskar was inducted into the Legends Club as the fourth member on his 64th birthday.
"Over the last forty years the three best openers I have seen are Gordon Greenidge (West Indies), Graham Gooch (England) and Matthew Hayden (Australia). But Sunil Gavaskar stands apart. I have not seen a better opening batsman," said Shastri in his keynote address at the Cricket Club of India.
