Vinod Ganpat Kambli (born 18 January 1972, Mumbai), Maharashtra) is a former Indian cricketer, who played for India, Mumbai and Boland. A prodigious talent, Kambli never quite fulfilled his potential.
Kambli was born in Mumbai, into a Dalit family. He rose to prominence, when he shared an unbroken partnership of 664 in a school match with Sachin Tendulkar. Kambli contributed 349* before their coach Acharekar forced the pair to declare. Kambli, who started his Ranji trophy career with a six off the first ball he faced, soon followed Sachin in to the Indian team. Kambli had a exciting start to his test career making two double-centuries and two centuries in as many as seven tests. However, he lost his touch midway through his career and was subsequently dropped from the team. His technical insecurity against fast short-pitched bowling, and disciplinary problems, militated against his selection. He played in his last Test match aged just 24.
Kambli, nevertheless, was able to make frequent comebacks into the one-day squad, but could not cement his place in the team. He played his last ODI in 2000.
