Mumbai: Former Indian cricketer and childhood friend of Sachin Tendulkar Vinod Kambli wants to earn money. Therefore, he has been looking for cricket-related assignments. Currently, his only source of income is the pension he gets from the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

The 50-year-old former batter, Kambli, last coached a team during the 2019 T20 Mumbai League. But everything turned futile due to the pandemic of COVID-19. His only income is now just INR 30,000 from the BCCI. Kambli worked as a mentor to young cricketers at the Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy in Nerul. But he failed to continue due to location.

I had to wake up at 5 am, take a cab to DY Patil Stadium, and it was a busy schedule. I would then coach at the BKC ground in the evening, “Kambli said.” As a retired cricketer, he is totally dependent on the BCCI pension, which takes care of his family.

Kambli made it clear that his childhood friend and India batting legend Sachin Tendulkar knows everything regarding his financial position. But he doesn’t expect anything from Tendulkar.

He provided me with the TMGA (Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy) assignment. I was jubilant. As a friend, he always stands beside me.

Kambli added that he is ready to work if the Mumbai team needs him. I need assignments so that I can work with youngsters. Mumbai has appointed Amol Muzumdar as its head coach, but if I am fit for any place, I am ready to work. We have played cricket together. So I want the Mumbai team to play as a team and perform better.

Kambli  played  104 ODIs and 17 Test matches for India between 1991 and 2000.
