Mumbai, July 3: Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, in a tweet wishing happy birthday to his one-time team mate and India's ace spinner Harbhajan Singh, shared a funny picture of him with the spinner and wished him happy birthday in Tamil. For those who might be wondering why did Sachin choose Tamil to wish the spinner on his special day, the connection is with Chennai Super kings.
