Sachin Tendulkar – known the god of Indian cricket – is celebrating his 45th birthday today (April 24). Fans and friends all across the world have wished the master blaster on his special day. So how could the Mumbai Police social media team miss the opportunity to wish one of the greatest batsmen of all time? Early today, Mumbai Police tweeted out greetings on Tendulkar’s birthday, and unsurprisingly, it was smartly blended with a message on road safety, one that even the ace cricketer has spoken about on various occasions. “The Little Master set great records wearing a helmet! How about simply following his footsteps?”, Mumbai Police tweeted.

The tweet also had a collage image of Sachin Tendulkar, wherein he is seen either wearing or holding his helmet. On the pictures, Mumbai Police wrote, “Being worn by the God of Cricket since 1989.” Mumbai Police’s tweet was a masterstroke and was appreciated by Twitterati. “Hello Mumbai Police your social media team deserves a Padma Bhushan for such classic messages for the public interest”, said one.
