Tendulkar's long-time opening partner Sourav Ganguly also paid his wishes with a comment. “Wish her a very happy birthday from me,” Ganguly commented on the post.
Tendulkar, who turned 47 on April 24, had received a “priceless” birthday gift from his mother – an idol of Lord Ganesha. “Started my day by taking blessings from my Mother. Sharing a photo of Ganpati Bappa that she gifted me. Absolutely priceless,” Tendulkar had posted on Twitter on his birthday and shared two pictures taken while seeking blessings from his mother.
The former India captain has in the past shared many pictures with his Aai. On Mother's Day this year, Tendulkar shared a picture of his mother holding him when he was an infant and wrote an emotional post.
“You are AAI to me because, besides everything else you are Always Amazing & Irreplaceable. Thank you for everything you have done for me,” Tendulkar wrote to wish his mother on Mother's Day.
Tendulkar retired from international cricket in 2013 and finished a playing career of more than two decades as the highest scorer in Tests and One-Day International cricket.
