Happy Birthday, Sachin Tendulkar.

Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar turned 45 on Tuesday and was inundated with best wishes from the cricketing fraternity across the globe. 

Born in 1973, Tendulkar is arguably the best batsman to ever play the game of cricket. He made his debut for the country in 1989 and went on to play for the next 24 years. 

Considered as one of the greatest batsmen of all time, Tendulkar is the highest run scorer of all time in international cricket--having notched up 18,426 ODI runs and 15,921 Test cricket runs.

He is the only cricketer to have hit 100 international centuries, and the first to score a double century in ODIs.

The Mumbaikar received India's highest civilian award Bharat Ratna in 2014. He is the youngest recipient to date and the first ever sportsperson to receive the award.

During his career, Tendulkar gave the game of cricket a status of religion in India. 

Even after taking retirement from the game, Tendulkar continues to capture the imagination of all cricket fans. 

The Master Blaster turns 45 today and the social media has flooded with wishes for the 'God of Cricket'. 

The entire cricketing fraternity took some time off their busy schedule and wished the little master on his special day.
