There was a time when many people watched cricket only because of Sachin Tendulkar. His fans would switch off the television if he got out. Seven years after Tendulkar retired from the sport, his fan following continues to be as big as ever.
He started his career in 1989 and in his 24-year long stint he established many records.
Tendulkar turns 47 today. As his fans celebrate his birthday, here are some throwback pictures of the master blaster which will leave you in awe.

In this photo, Tendulkar can be seen with former cricketer Vinod Kambli and his coach Ramakant Achrekar. Sharing the picture, Tendulkar wrote, “A special afternoon with the person who taught us so much and made us who we are.”
