Born on April 24, 1973, Sachin Tendulkar celebrates his 41st birthday on Thursday. Tendulkar, who has innumerable batting records to his name, retired from international cricket last year in 2013. Tendulkar was currently with the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Mumbai Indians in the ongoing edition and has returned to India.
Tendulkar has taken a brief break form Mumbai Indians’ campaign in the IPL as he has returned to the country to vote in the general elections. Tendulkar also posted a Facebook message to his followers a day prior to the voting in his hometown, Mumbai.
“Every run counts in the game of cricket and every vote counts in an election. Don’t underestimate the power of your vote. In Mumbai to exercise my right. Hope you play your part — Please Cast your vote,” Tendulkar posted on his Facebook page.
According to PTI, The jury is still out on whether Sachin Tendulkar retired a greater batsman than late Australian legend Don Bradman but a Chennai-based author claims to have found the “forensic evidence” to prove that the Indian maestro was indeed the better of the two icons.
On the eve of Tendulkar’s 41st birthday, his first after retiring from international cricket, Rudolph Lambert Fernandez has come up with a book ‘Greater Than Bradman‘, which aims to prove that the Little Master is the greatest batsman of all time.
