As the clock struck midnight, Sara Tendulkar was quick to wish her father Sachin Tendulkar a 'happy birthday' as the legendary cricketer turned 47 years old on Friday, April 24. Admirably nicknamed 'The Master Blaster', Sachin has been one of the best batsmen in the world of international cricket with multiple records to his credit. 

Sachin Tendulkar made his debut for India at 16 years 205 days of age, becoming India's youngest debutant. Tendulkar represented India for more than two decades and scored more than 100 centuries during the course of his celebrated career.

Tendulkar not to celebrate 47th birthday 

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Master Blaster will not be celebrating his birthday this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tendulkar's decision comes as a mark of respect for the frontline workers leading India's fight against COVID-19.

"Sachin has decided that this is not the time for celebrations. He feels that this is the best tribute he can pay to all the doctors, nurses, para-medics, policemen, defence personnel, who are at the frontline," a source close to the player told PTI on Wednesday.
