Among those wishing the Master Blaster on his 44th were India captain Virat Kohli, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina and Mohammad Kaif. Tendulkar last played in International cricket for India four years back. In his career of 24 years, he has created a number of records that still remain untouched.
The cricket legend maintains the record of the most runs in international cricket. The Indian cricketer from Mumbai became the first batsman to score a 100 centuries. While he made 49 hundreds in one-day Internationals, he scored 52 in Test cricket. He was also the first batsman to score a double century in ODI.
Tendulkar has inspired a generation of fans to take up cricket professionally. He played his last international Test match against West Indies at the iconic Wankhede stadium in his hometown Mumbai.
