TIDU Sports writer Kersi Meher-Homji writes about his experience in the Indian dressing:
“I was in the Indian Dressing Room when India played Australia in the Sydney Test in January 1981. The great Garry Sobers, then living in Sydney, was in the Indian Dressing Room. When the equally great Sunil Gavaskar returned to the pavilion caught Marsh bowled Lillee for a duck, Sobers scolded him saying, “Is this the way you play an inswinger, hanging your bat out?”

And Gavaskar, a batting maestro even then, listened dutifully as if he was an errant pupil in the headmaster’s office!
Gavaskar told me later about Sobers being superstitious. He always touched 21 year-old Gavaskar’s head for luck when India toured the West Indies in 1970-71.”
