Sachin Tendulkar turned 45 today and wishes poured in from every corner of the world to wish the legendary Indian cricketer.

However, Cricket Australia (CA) pushed out a tongue-in-cheek tweet which left Tendulkar's fans fuming.

The Australian Cricket board wished former Australian fast bowler Damien Fleming and ignored Sachin. 

CA's official Twitter handle also attached a video of the swing bowler taking a wicket with the batsman being none other than Sachin Tendulkar.

Within minutes fans questioned CA's decision to put out the tweet on Tendulkar's birthday and said it was disrespectful to the batting legend.

For the record, Fleming dismissed Tendulkar seven times in combined Test and ODIs.
