Sachin Tendulkar celebrates his birthday by cutting cake at IPL match at Wankhede
Sachin Tendulkar birthday
Sachin Tendulkar celebrated his 44th birthday at the IPL match at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday evening. IPL commentator Matthew Hayden also interviewed Tendulkar while the game between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant was on. Tendulkar cut a cake and had the whole crowd singing Happy Birthday for him.
In the interview to Hayden, Tendulkar joked about his birthday, saying, “You never cut a cricket bat…will cut the outfield to open up the gaps. Being 44 is nice but also covering those 44 years (has been nice). My movie is probably coming out on May 26th and I have been busy these days to ensure how best it is launched. I can’t believe I am 44.”

Considering Tendulkar was in the middle of the IPL buzz with the match taking place LIVE, he also talked about the tournament, adding, “I never thought it will become so big. The way it has taken off it’s remarkable. In these 10 years, people have become connected to their clubs and backing their play.”
While Tendulkar played only one T20 International, he was involved in 96 T20s overall, scoring over 2,000 runs at an average of 32.90.
