The God Of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar turns 44 today. The cricketing legend was born on April 24, 1973, in Bombay (Now Mumbai). Sachin Tendulkar is known as one of the greatest to have played the game of Cricket. He stood as India’s batting mainstay throughout his career and gained crores of fans with his batting performance and his down-to-earth character.
When he debuted for India, he was just 16. Since then, he never saw back as his cricketing skills have been the answer for everyone and everything.
With Tendulkar celebrating his 44th birthday, scores of cricketers, former and current players, lined up on social networking site Twitter to wish the legendary player. Starting from Anil Kumble, Sehwag, Gambhir, Gilchrist, and so on, everyone took the chance of wishing Sachin Tendulkar on his birthday.
Among everyone, one could really be curious of knowing what and how did the Nawab of Najafgarh Virender Sehwag wish Master Blaster. Virender Sehwag’s love for ‘God Ji’ Sachin Tendulkar knows no bounds. The two idols of Indian cricket were a deadly combo at the top of the batting order. On the field, Sehwag’s fireworks were balanced by Tendulkar’s disciplined knocks.
But on Tendulkar’s 44th birthday, Sehwag pointed out something a god fearing person should be aware of. Commit the crime when the God is sleeping. (Not really. Never do that.)
Here’s how Sehwag wished Sachin on his 44th birthday:

Sachin Tendulkar throughout his 24-year long career created many records. He was not only the first batsman to score 10,000 runs in ODIs, but became the first batsman ever to notch a double hundred in the 50-over format. Tendulkar scored 34347 international runs including 51 Test and 49 ODI centuries, the most by any batsman in both the formats.
We wish Sachin Tendulkar SIR a very Happy Birthday and good luck in whatever he does.
