Sachin Tendulkar compiled a mountain of runs for almost a quarter of a century and reached dizzying heights by defying a burden of expectation that would have crushed lesser mortals.
Whenever Tendulkar came to the crease, India’s billion-plus population made secret deals with Gods, froze where they were, clutched lucky charms and indulged in all sorts of superstitions.
And the cricket’s most prolific run-accumulator created plenty of those heart-in-mouth moments in his 24 years in international cricket.
Considering the massive fan-following of the legendary batsman, wishes came pouring in from all corners of the world for the ‘GOD of cricket’.
Former and current cricketers too took to Twitter to wish Tendulkar on his 47th birthday.
Here are the best birthday wishes for Sachin Tendulkar:
