Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has been inducted into the International Cricket Council’s Hall of Fame. Fans and fellow cricketers cannot congratulate him enough for the achievement.

ICC, on its official Twitter handle, asked fans if there has ever been a cricketer quite like Tendulkar and the reactions of his fellow mates clear all the doubts.

Tendulkar became the sixth India to be inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame after Sunil Gavaskar, Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid.

Tendulkar said, “On this occasion, I would like to thank all of those who were by my side over a long international career. My parents, brother Ajit and wife Anjali have been pillars of strength while I was lucky to have someone like coach Ramakant Achrekar as an early guide and mentor,” on Thursday.

The batting legend has been a ‘true inspiration’ to Ajinkya Rahane as he’s quoted tweeting, “Heartiest congratulations to @sachin_rt paaji for being inducted in the #ICCHallOfFame. You’ve been a true inspiration for me and millions all over the globe!”

Whereas, cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir felt that the induction should have happened in Sachin’s playing days itself. “Congratulations on being inducted in the #ICCHallOfFame @sachin_rt paaji. Something I earnestly believe should have happened in your playing days itself 😉👏 Very well deserved.”

Vinod Kamble, who shares a special bond with Tendulkar tweeted, “You followed your dream 💭 and lived your life making it come true. Thrilled to hear the news of you being inducted in to the @ICC Hall of Fame. A big hug and lots of love, @sachin_rt! #SachInHallOfFame #ICCHallOfFame”

Here are some of the priceless reactions the sporting fraternity showered on Tendulkar’s achievement:

The film fraternity and celebrities closely related to Sachin also congratulated him on Twitter:

Sachin Tendulkar as well took Twitter to thank all his fans and people who’ve supported him throughout his journey. “Humbled and happy to be inducted into the #ICCHallOfFame. A lot of people have contributed towards helping me become who I am today. A big thank you to my family, friends & fans across the globe for the love & support. Congratulations to Cathryn Fitzpatrick & @AllanDonald33,” he tweeted.
