The God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar, turns 45 today and Twitter couldn’t control itself. Back in 2017, the Mumbai Indians hosted Sachin Tendulkar’s birthday at the Wankhede Stadium. Sachin’s first appearance on the international stage was when he served as the ball boy during the 1987 semi-final between India and England. A year later, he came on as a substitute for Pakistan in Brabourne Stadium.
In 1990 he made his test debut and rest is the history. As he turns 45 today, it seemed as if the whole of India wanted to wish the legend. From Anil Kumble to Mamata Banerjee, to Bollywood, everyone is celebrating the Master Blaster’s birthday. Here are some tweets for the God of Cricket.
Many players have played cricket, few became Legends, few became greats but there was, is and will be only one GOD of Cricket.
Happy birthday to the greatest of the greats @sachin_rt Sir ?

To the man who united a billion Indians and brought a smile to their faces everytime he walked out to bat. A dream that he turned into reality.
Sachin is an emotion.. Sachin is a phenomena!

Every single Cricketer who grew up in the 90's has admired @sachin_rt and have picked up a bat because of him. His contribution to cricket is not just confined to 22 yards. It's more than that and it will always be. #HappyBirthdaySachin pic.twitter.com/QFpzBMMDEG
