Sachin Tendulkar, who played 463 ODIs for the Indian team, is also hailed as Cricket’s God in the cricket-obsessed country, India. The cricket legend turned 44 today and still remains the only batsman in the world cricket to have 100 centuries under his belt.
Tendulkar drew curtains to his illustrious 24 year-old career after playing his 200th Test which came against West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium in November 2013.
The legendary cricketer announced retirement from ODIs in December 2012. Even after retirement, Tendulkar remains that one cricketer whom people follows religiously.
On Sachin’s 44th birthday, cricketers and big names from all over the world have sent wonderful birthday wishes for him. Here’s the compilation of the wishes Sachin has got on Twitter from his friends and well-wishers.
