The legendary Sachin Tendulkar, who will turn 47 on Friday, has decided not to celebrate his birthday this year as a mark of respect to the frontline workers leading India’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Sachin has decided that this is not the time for celebrations. He feels that this is the best tribute he can pay to all the doctors, nurses, para-medics, policemen, defence personnel, who are at the frontline,” a source close to the player told PTI on Wednesday.

Tendulkar has already contributed a total of Rs 50 lakh to the and CM Relief fund. He is also involved with several other relief work initiatives.
