Born in 1973, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has turned 47 today. Having made his international debut at the age of 16 in 1989, Tendulkar went on to achieve unprecedented paradigms during his 24-year old international career.
Considering the massive fan-following of the legendary batsman, wishes are expected to come from all corners of the world.
While there is no hiding to the certitude that the right-hand batsman has plentiful batting records to his name, one must not ignore the fact that he has 201 international wickets across formats under his belt.
In 664 international matches across formats, Tendulkar has scored 34,357 runs at an average of 48.52 including 100 centuries and 164 half-centuries.
Tendulkar, who won the Arjuna Award for his outstanding achievements in cricket in 1994, went on to receive Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award in 2014.
Tendulkar, who retired from international cricket in 2013, was seen rewinding the clock twice this year. While a shoulder injury didn’t allow Tendulkar to take part in the Bushfire Relief Match, the coach of Ponting XI batted for an over against Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry during the innings break.
Named the captain of India Legends in the World Road Safety Series, Tendulkar registered scores of 36 and 0 before the novel COVID-19 pandemic postponed the tournament. Had it not been the global crisis, Tendulkar would have continued his mentor role at Indian Premier League franchise Mumbai Indians.
