New Delhi: Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar turns 44 on Monday and the social media is flooded with birthday wishes for the Master Blaster.
One of the greatest cricketers to ever grace the game, Sachin won it all in the game and made an entire nation believe that nothing is impossible. With numerous personal and team milestones to his name, Sachin conquered his final frontier in the year 2011 when India lifted the World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium.
Six years and 22 days have passed since India's historic night in Mumbai but the image of Sachin holding the trophy is still fresh in the minds of every Indian cricket fan.
From former teammates like Anil Kumble, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh, to rivals like Adam Glichrist and Michael Clarke, many current and former cricketers took to social media to wish Tendulkar on his special day.
