Kambli and Tendulkar came into the spotlight when they created a world record partnership of 664 runs while playing for Shardashram Vidyamandir against St Xavier's High School. Tendulkar scored an unbeaten 326 while Kamble played a knock of unbeaten 349.
The two young boys became an overnight sensation and as a result of the same Tendulkar got an opportunity to play for the country at the age of 16, that too against Pakistan in Pakistan.
Kambli too went on to make his debut for the national side in a couple of years.
The duo's friendship was admired by all until, in an interview in 2009, Kambli mentioned the right-handed batsman could have helped him cement his place into the national side. This led to differences between them.
However, the two were seen together during an event organised by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) to commemorate the landmark 500th Ranji Trophy game for Mumbai.
The MCA felicitated their former captains at the Sharad Pawar Cricket Academy in Mumbai. Sachin
