Mumbai: Indias most loved sportsman, the batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar turned 37 today at a time when Indian cricket has been plunged into one of its worst crisis ever with the IPL controversy showing no sign of relenting.
The Mumbai Indians batsman got a perfect birthday gift yesterday when he was adjudged the best batsman of IPL III in an award function.
However, Tendulkar will have to put his birthday celebrations on hold as he has some unfinished task to complete in the IPL final tomorrow.
The tournaments most prolific batsman, Tendulkar, has 570 runs in his kitty from 14 matches with five fifties and beat competitions from Royal Challengers batsmen Jacques Kallis (553 runs from 15) and Robin Uthappa (374 from 15) and Chennai Super Kings Suresh Raina (463 from 15) and Murali Vijay (432 from 14) for the Jury Award for best batsman.
Tendulkar is, however, struggling hard to get fit after splitting his right hand webbing during the semifinals. Fans are keeping their fingers crossed that he is declared fit to play the final tomorrow.
Tendulkar has been in phenomenal form which has made cricket fans around the world wonder what makes him tick on the cricket field with such consistency even after 20 years of virtually non-stop play at the international level.
And to top it all, not a whiff of the scandals that have enveloped the sport in the duration of his incredible career has besmirched his name.
Just when people started writing epitaph on his career, his heavy bat boomed with a huge bang in all three forms of the game -- Tests, One-Day Internationals and in the IPL to silence them.
