Every time Sachin Tendulkar would walk to the pitch to bat, the entire stadium would roar with one chant -- "SACHIN, SACHIN". The batting maestro is the only cricketer to have hit 100 international centuries (51 Test and 49 ODI). The "God" is probably one of the major reasons why cricket is almost like a religion in India.

On Sunday, the 'master blaster' celebrated his 43rd birthday in his hometown Mumbai in a very special way. Sachin spent his birthday playing cricket with children from Make-A-Wish India.

He posted a video on his official Facebook page:

While the batting legend celebrated his birthday by playing the sport he loves the most, social media didn't stay far behind in the celebrations and trended #HappyBirthdaySachin hashtag on Twitter.
