Sachin Tendulkar, cricketing icon, superstar and a remarkably humble human being, turned 47 on Friday (April 24).
As the clock struck midnight, Sara Tendulkar was quick to wish her father a ‘happy birthday’ by sharing a lovely post on Instagram.
Admirably nicknamed ‘The Master Blaster’, Sachin has been the most prolific batsman of all time. He represented India at international cricket for more than two decades and scored 100 centuries in the course of his illustrated career.
Sara wishes her dad
In an update to her Instagram story, Sara Tendulkar posted two adorable pictures of her with dad Sachin Tendulkar – one from her childhood album and another one from recent times.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Sachin will not be celebrating his birthday this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tendulkar’s decision comes as a mark of respect for the frontline workers leading India’s battle against COVID-19.
“Sachin has decided that this is not the time for celebrations. He feels that this is the best tribute he can pay to all the doctors, nurses, paramedics, policemen, defence personnel, who are at the frontline,” a source close to the player told PTI on Wednesday.
