The IPL match between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad was relegated to the sidelines as cricket fans at the Wankhede stadium used the opportunity to celebrate the birthday of Mumbai's darling son Sachin Tendulkar, who turned 45 on Tuesday.


The Mumbai Indians mentor was the centre of attention and was greeted by players and support staff of both teams.

Infact, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, who is doing commentary for the IPL, also presented Tendulkar with a birthday gift ahead of the match.

The fans, who thronged the Wankhede stadium, carried posters with birthday wishes for the Indian batting legend.

See below how Wankhede celebrated Tendulkar's special day:
