Sachin Tendulkar, known as God of cricket, was born on April 24, 1973.
The Little Master, as he is commonly known in cricket circle, scripted a history in the cricket world by clinching the title of being one of the greatest cricketers who believed in breaking records and scaling new heights.
The man knew how to win matches by his sharp shots which left the fielders confused.
Now let’s see how many cricketers he share his birthday with:
Kumar Dharmasena: He was born two years before the Little Master, and is at present one of the finest umpires in the ICC Elite Panel. He was a part of Sri Lanka’s 1996 World Cup triumph. With 207 international wickets and a batting average of around 20 from 141 ODIs and 31 Tests, Dharmasena was certainly in the category of a reliable all-rounder.
Damien Fleming: Damien Fleming of international cricket was born three years ahead of Tendulkar. The Aussie pacer started off his career with a hat-trick. He further managed another hat-trick against India in 1999-2000, but Shane Warne played spoilsport and grassed the catch.
MSK Prasad: Mannava Sri Kanth Prasad, also called as MSK, is a recognisable face from the 1990s. Hailing from Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, he was a wicketkeeper since his junior days and went on to debut for India against Bangladesh in the Coca Cola Triangular series in May 1998.
