Tendulkar, popularly called the ‘God of Cricket’ will be turning 50 on Monday (April 24). The Indian cricket legend was in attendance for the big clash in his capacity as the mentor of the MI franchise. This is a role he has occupied since the 2014 season, after his retirement a year earlier.
During the PBKS’ innings, a special cake was set-up near the MI dugout, with many members of the MI team making a huddle near the spot. The crowd was delighted to see the legendary batter and chanted ‘Sachin Sachin’ in unison as the atmosphere in the stadium was one to savour.
Many present in the stands were spotted having special banners for Sachin, and many also came up with special face masks to celebrate his birthday.
Tendulkar’s son Arjun was in MI’s lineup for the third game in a row, having made his debut last week. After being largely praised for his performances in the first two games, Arjun had a day to forget. After bowling two good overs, which included getting the wicket of danger man Prabhsimran Singh with a stunning yorker, skipper Rohit trusted Arjun with the 16th over, which proved to be a disaster for the five-time champions as Ajrun conceded 31 runs in the over.
Talking about Sachin, he played for MI from 2008 to 2013 and was their first-ever permanent captain. Sachin retired in 2013 after a season that saw the Mumbai-based franchise win both the IPL and the now defunct Champions League title. Sachin retired from international cricket that year after a 24-year career at the highest level that saw him become the player with the most runs and centuries in both Test and ODI cricket.
