Former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar turned 70 years on Wednesday He was the first one to scale 10,000 runs in Test cricket and held most of the batting records before Sachin Tendulkar broke them.

Born 10 July 1949, Gavaskar set plenty of world records during his career. Most Test runs and most Test centuries scored by any batsman were the two main records held by him for quite some time.

The record of 34 Test centuries was intact for almost two decades but later it was broken by another Mumbai legend Sachin Tendulkar in December 2005.

On the occasion of his birthday, wishes poured in from all corners as people took to Twitter and paid tribute to him. Here are some of the tweets that came in for the current commentator:
