From his current team-mates and admirers to his past colleagues and opponents, all took to twitter to wish Sachin Tendulkar on his 40th birthday today.

His close friend and former team-mate Vinod Kambli, with whom Tendulkar shared a world record 664-run partnership while playing for Shardashram Vidya Mandir in Harris Shield in 1988, was one of the first to wish the senior batsman.
