There have been a few brilliant gestures during this IPL which have won the hearts of the fans and critics alike. These are the incidents which brought a smile to the faces of the thousands of people watching the beautiful game we call cricket. We enlist the Top five moments from this season’s IPL so far.
5) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MASTER BLASTER
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is more than just a cricketer for most Indians. He is the face of cricket. He is the pride of India. He is the God of a religion known as cricket. Indians are known to avidly worship their Gods. S.R Tendulkar is no exception. While hearing the chants of ‘Sachiiin Sachiiiin’ is not new for the legend, he was pleasantly surprised when the entire Wankhede Stadium sung the Happy Birthday song for their favourite son when he was cutting the cake with Matthew Hayden by his side on 24th April when MI was taking on RPS.
The Master had turned 44 and the crowd left no stone unturned to try and make him feel special as always. Sachin looked a bit overwhelmed with this gesture and thanked the spectators for their gesture. This incident proves that Tendulkar continues to have a special place in every Indian’s heart even after 4 years of retiring from international cricket. It was indeed a heart-touching moment and will not be forgotten too soon.
