During the game, the cricketer turned commentator Mathew Hayden had a chat with Sachin near the MI dugout. Hayden brought a cake which had the shape of a cricket field with a bat and a ball on it. Sachin cut the cake and celebrated his birthday right there at the Wankhede stadium during a live game. While cutting the cake, Sachin said,”I thought we would be cutting the quietly and didn’t expect the whole stadium would be singing happy birthday for me.”

When asked to cut the cake, Sachin said,”It would be nice not to cut the cricket bat but the outfield finding the gap.”
