He contributed significantly to Pakistan cricket as he took 208 wickets in just 49 tests. He was the fastest to reach 100 ODI wickets and his immaculate control meant that he more or less bowled in the death overs, with reasonable success. Saqlain Mushtaq had a heartfelt message for Sachin on his birthday.
On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar has amassed over 34000 runs in International cricket and no other player have come close to breaking the record. The Bharat Ratna awardee spent 25 years in international cricket and was a great servant of Indian cricket.
