Stay Safe Legendary Sachin Tendulkar
Legendary India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar turned 48 on Saturday and wishes poured in from the cricket community and beyond. Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, and Venkatesh Prasad among other cricketers posted their wishes on social media. All Indian Premier League teams, including Mumbai Indians, the team Tendulkar played for, wished the legendary cricketer. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted highlights of Tendulkar’s ODI double-hundred – the first by any batsman in the format – to wish the cricketer.
“Many many happy returns of the day @sachin_rt to an absolute legend of cricket. Your passion towards cricket made us love the game and gave a lifetime of memories! Wishing you a blessed & a healthy life always,” Raina wrote in a tweet.
“Very few individuals are capable of evoking collective emotions of millions of people the way you do, Sachin Paaji! Here’s wishing you a very happy birthday and an even happier year ahead!” wrote Rahane.
Tendulkar’s India teammate from the 1990s and early 2000s Venkatesh Prasad posted a tweet to wish the cricketer.
“Sach is truth, Sach is life, Sach is the answer, Sach is it. Birthday greetings to not only the greatest batsman the world has seen, but the most humble and incredible human being @sachin_rt,” wrote Prasad.
