Sachin Tendulkar turned 47 on Friday with wishes pouring in from all parts of the globe for the cricket legend. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted a tribute video on its official Twitter handle on Sachin Tendulkar Birthday. “As the Master Blaster @sachin_rt turns 47, we relive one of his glorious knocks against England in 2008. He dedicated this ton – 41st in Test cricket, to the victims of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack,” the caption of the video read. The current coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri was among the first to wish Sachin Tendulkar, tweeting “Happy Birthday, Bossman. The legacy you’ve left behind in the sport is immortal. God bless Champ“.
