It is that moment of the year when the entire country celebrates the birthday of one of its best sporting idol. Some of them saw him grow; some have grown up with him; while ‘Generation Y’ has grown up on him. We are talking about none other than our ‘Master Blaster’, Sachin Tendulkar, who is celebrating his 41st birthday today.
A thousand records are broken and new ones are made but one thing that has continued to be stable is the love for the ‘God of Cricket’ in every Indian’s heart. Sachin Tendulkar must have retired from international cricket but there is barely anything this veteran hadn’t accomplished in his illustrious career. He is a testimony in himself. Right from being the highest run scorer (in both ODI and Test matches) to scoring 100 centuries, the list goes on…
Honored with the Arjuna Award, Khel Ratna award, Padma Bhushan and the Bharat Ratna while the list of accolades is never ending, so is the praise for this extremely talented and passionate Indian cricketer.
Just when everybody is presuming what’s next on cards for the Master Blaster? Sachin has decided to mentor the Mumbai Indians team for the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League this year. Besides, he has acquired the Kochi team for the upcoming Indian Soccer League.
Now we know why he is revered by his ardent fans as ‘God of Cricket’! Thank you, Sachin, for all the delight. Have a blast on your 41st!
