There is hardly any doubt that Sachin Tendulkar is the best batsman in world. His record of 100 international tons and most international in both, Tests and ODIs is ample proof of that. On Saturday, the living legend turned 48 as wishes poured in from the world over. Born on April 24, 1973, the batsman from Mumbai changed the way cricket was played all around the world.
He is also received the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour, back in 2013 upon his retirement from international cricket. That made him the first and only sportsperson to achieve this honour.
Sach is truth , Sach is life , Sach is the answer, Sach is it.
