Agency News

Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar turns 46 today.

As part of birthday, Sachin has decided to interact with fans across the world through his App on Wednesday. He noted on Twitter: To all of you who have been waiting to connect with @sachin_rton his birthday, your dream has come true! The Master will go live tomorrow to connect with all of you only on the 100MB App! Are you excited?

The master blaster ruled the game of cricket and pretty much broke every possible batting record in a career spanning 24 years. Such was the aura and greatness of Tendulkar that he was popularly known as the God of Cricket.

Tendulkar announced his retirement from cricket in 2013 and he now currently is with IPL franchise Mumbai Indians. Tendulkar finished his career as the leading run-getter in international cricket, with 34,357 runs across formats -- 15,921 in 200 Tests, 18426 in 463 ODIs.

Tendulkar was the first player to smash a double hundred in ODIs when he struck 200 not out off 147 balls against South Africa in Gwalior on February 24, 2010. He made a record six World Cup appearances eventually ending up on the triumphant side in his last, in 2011 at the Wankhede stadium when India defeated Sri Lanka in the final.

He played his final match -- his 200th Test -- at his home ground, the Wankhede stadium, in November 2013 when India hosted West Indies in a Test series.
