Birthday wishes of current and former colleagues poured in on social media as iconic cricketer Sachin Tendulkar turned 42 on Friday.

Having bid an emotional adieu to the game in November 2013 at Wankhede, Tendulkar continues to rule the hearts of millions of his fans. Tendulkar, who is chief mentor of IPL side Mumbai Indians, is in Mumbai ahead of the team's game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The batting maestro's former teammate and spin legend Anil Kumble, who is still with Tendulkar as MI mentor, wished the World Cup-winner on Twitter.

MI skipper Rohit Sharma also wished the Master Blaster.

Current national Test skipper and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli also took to social media to wish the champion player.

Another young teammate of Tendulkar, Ishant Sharma also wished his cricket idol.

Former player Mohammad Kaif, who also played a lot of cricket with the legend, had this to say:

Out-of-favour Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan also did not forget the great man's birthday.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also wished the Bharat Ratna awardee on his special day.

In reply to all the wishes, Tendulkar, as usual, kept it simple and classy with this:

Blessed to celebrate with dear Mother
