Kambli upset at burnt score-sheet

Mumbai, Feb 28: Former India batsman Vinod Kambli is fuming at Mumbai School Sports Association's (MSSA) for burning the world record score-sheet of the partnership involving the left-hander and Sachin Tendulkar.

On Wednesday, it was reported that the MSSA incinerated the score-sheet of world record partnership of 664 between Tendulkar and Kambli in a Harris Shield match in 1988.

Hearing about this, Kambli has hit out at MSSA and said if they could not preserve the score-sheet they should have hand it over to him or Tendulkar.

MSSA had cited lack of space to keep old documents and many including the historic score-sheet were destroyed.

"I am really upset that MSSA couldn't treasure the sheet with a world-record partnership on it. I felt bad to read an MSSA official treating the score sheet like an ordinary one. If MSSA was unable to maintain the sheet, they could have given it to me or Sachin (Tendulkar). We would have treasured it for the rest of our lives," Kambli was quotes as saying by "MiD DAY" newspaper on Thursday.

In that historic game, Tendulkar scored 326 not out and Kambli was unbeaten on 349 for Sharadashram Vidyamandir School against St Xavier's.
