Happy Birthday Sachin Tendulkar: With the whole world queuing up to wish Sachin Tendulkar as he turns 46, BCCI came up with a special post where they posted the little master’s ODI double ton against South Africa. That made him the first ever cricketer to breach the 200-run-mark in an ODI. Before that, such a feat was unheard off and it was Tendulkar who raised the bar. BCCI took to Twitter and captioned the post as “Here’s wishing the Master Blaster a very happy birthday. On this special day, we take a look at his iconic ODI double ton against South Africa.”

Regarded as the best batsmen ever in modern-day cricket or some referred him as the ultimate ‘God of Cricket’. Tendulkar, who was born on April 24, 1973, embellished his name around every possible batting record which a human mind can think of. 18,426 ODI runs, 15, 921 Test runs, 463 ODIs, 200 Test matches, 100 international centuries and at last, a World Cup – these are some mindboggling numbers and stats which define just a part of Tendulkar’s legacy. Is there anything else a player can dream or ask for in his lifetime? The answer we all know.

Tendulkar is currently a part of the Mumbai Indians franchise as a mentor and id often seen at venues where they play.

In 2010, Tendulkar’s name was included in the 100 “Most Influential People in the World” by Time Magazine.

Thank you, Sachin for carrying the burden of a zillion hopes for 24 long years and giving us infinite moments of joy and pride with that blade in your hand. Happy Birthday ‘God’!
