Former Indian cricket captain Sachin Tendulkar turned 47 on April 24 and wishes came pouring in for the batting icon. While the cricketing fraternity took to social media and wished Sachin Tendulkar on his birthday, his childhood friend and former teammate Vinod Kambli couldn’t be left far behind. Vinod Kambli also took to the microblogging site but in his own unique way, he serenaded a Bollywood classic for the legendary cricketer in a 51-second video.
