Sachin's birthday bash will be a low-key affair
Sachin Tendulkar is 39 today, but there will no big celebration.
He and his wife Anjali are in Chandigarh, where his team Mumbai Indians takes on Kings XI Punjab in Wednesday's only Indian Premier League match.
While the five-star hotel where Tendulkar and his team-mates are staying have made arrangements for a party to celebrate the birthday, his first since scoring his 100th international ton, Mumbai Indians sources said the bash will be a low-key affair.

Last year Tendulkar did not celebrate his birthday
Last year, Tendulkar did not celebrate his birthday following the demise of his spiritual guru Satya Sai Baba.
In a career spanning nearly 23 years, he has scored 51 centuries from 188 Tests and 49 from 463 ODIs.
Join us in wishing the batting icon a Happy Birthday and all the best for the year ahead.
