Tendulkar’s exploits are more than well documented and every year on his birthday Indian cricket fans rewind to the magical century at Sharjah against Australia in the final of Coca-Cola Cup.
This year, while the good wishes kept flowing in, English journalist Piers Morgan tweeted to Sachin with a unique wish.
Morgan posted a photo of himself with Brian Lara, Muttiah Muralitharan, Kevin Pietersen and Sachin Tendulkar and said, “Happy Birthday to the great @sachin_rt - whose career highlight was surely this selfie with four other cricketing legends?! @BrianLara @KP24 #Murali.”

Sachin, the holder of more than a few records in cricket, responded saying that he nor the likes of Lara, Muralitharan and Pietersen would be able to match Morgan’s legendary numbers on Twitter.
Sachin tweeted, “Totally agree @piersmorgan 😉! But @BrianLara, @KP24, #Murali and I combined could never MATCH your record of 123K (and still counting ..) tweets🙌”
Former England cricketer Pietersen could not hold back his laughter on the conversation either.
Sachin, who is currently a mentor for the IPL side Mumbai Indians, turned 46 on April 24 this year.
