Wankhede Stadium and Sachin Tendulkar share a special bond, right from the legend’s first class days to the last Test of his glittering career.
There was, thus, no way the Wankhede crowd would miss out on wishing their beloved Master Blaster on his 44th birthday with the IPL game between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant held on the same day. In the first strategic timeout of the Rising Pune Supergiant innings, the capacity crowd stood up, flashed their mobile torch lights in unison and sang the ‘Happy Birthday’ song twice for Tendulkar.
Moments later, the Little Master was shown on the two giant screens in the ground, sitting with a cake. The spectators, expectedly, were up on their feet again for their most famous birthday boy. For the large number of people who turned up on Monday, it was one big party.
