May God always keep you happy and healthy Gavaskar Sir,” Tendulkar said on Twitter.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wished Gavaskar saying: “Wishing Batting Legend and former India captain Sunil Gavaskar a very Happy Birthday”.

“Happy birthday to the legend #SunilGavaskar Sir. May you have a wonderful year ahead..,” Dhawan tweeted.
