The Greatest of All Time (GOAT) is the only player to have scored a 100 international hundreds in his 22-year playing career. He amassed over 34000 runs across formats.
The icon already cut a cake during the IPL 2023 match on Saturday (April 22) in front of the Mumbai Indians dugout and had said that reaching 50 was his ‘slowest half-century’.
The Mumbai Indians franchise, for whom Tendulkar played for all his six years in the IPL from 2008-2013, made arrangements to celebrate the occasion. While more cakes are being cut for the legend who retired 10 years ago, the cricket fraternity wished him on his golden jubilee.
From Virender Sehwag and Harsha Bhogle to Mayank Agarwal and cricket teams – the past, current and future generation stars took to social media to wish the legend on his 50th birthday. Here is a look at some of the wishes:
He came, he played & he conquered hearts for 4 generations! Good days or bad days, no runs or 100 runs, his head was always held high and feet firmly planted on the ground. He taught us that following the right process leads to long-term progress! pic.twitter.com/uHJe8sANw9

Your 100 hundreds, @sachin_rt were the hallmark of an immortal cricketer. But this 50 is to be celebrated as much because this belongs to an outstanding person. Seeing you the cricketer was a joy to behold. Knowing you the person has been heartwarming because you didn’t let fame…
