The icon of the sport, the role-model to multiple generations of cricketers and a human par excellence, Sachin Tendulkar, one of the greatest of all time, turned 44 today. It has been more than three years since he retired from the game, but he continues to hold a special place in the hearts of all those Indian who were privileged to see him bat through the 1990s and 2000s. Immensely respected in the cricketing circles for the way he carried himself in at the top of his game for close to quarter of a century, Sachin received a plethora of wishes on Twitter.
Here are a few of them:
