If you are a cricket lover, you must be aware of the fact that today is legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s birthday and wishes are pouring in from all the corners of the world for the Indian cricketer.
Sachin, who has turned 45 today, took retirement from the game in November 2013 but still he is one of the most loved and popular sportspersons of the world. He is the highest run scorer in both the formats of the game – one day and test matches and there are many records in his name that seem to be completely unachievable for anyone else.
The Australian cricketer Damien Fleming is also celebrating his birthday today but something happened that made the fans of Sachin Tendulkar very angry today.
The Cricket Australia took to Twitter to wish Damien but they posted a video showing Damien getting Sachin Tendulkar out on his delivery.
The caption that Cricket Australia wrote is, “Some @bowlologist gold from the man himself – happy birthday, Damien Fleming!”
Here’s the tweet:

This tweet didn’t go well with the Indian fans and they trolled Cricket Australia left and right. Check out some selected tweets:
Legend will be legend:
no matter if you post video of Sachin getting clean bold on his birthday today, legend will be legend. His records are enough to shut everyone. Getting out is just another part of game

U shameless Australian cricket.
Have not learnt from recent incidents and its repercussions.
U have posted the video of sachin's wicket on his birthday.
I don't know how many know Fleming but world knows God.
Ask from ur great bowlers, they will give u better information.

Can they stoop any lower?
No matter how many bans, Australians will never change…😁
On Sachin's Birthday you are posting a video how Damien Fleming bowled him. Couldn't you find another batsman instead of Sachin? #HappyBirthdaySachin
