NEW DELHI (AP) — India's media and former cricketers have united in celebrating Sachin Teldulkar's 40th birthday, as speculation continues over when the prolific batsman will end his international career.

Tendulkar, holder of most of the world's batting records — including most runs and centuries in both tests and one-day internationals — retired from limited-overs cricket last year but continues to play tests despite watching contemporaries like Ricky Ponting, Rahul Dravid and V. V. S. Laxman all step down over the past year.

Most leading Indian newspapers dedicated huge space to Tendulkar in their sports pages, along with columns by former players. Television channels broadcast programs dedicated to his achievements since his international debut in Pakistan as a 16-year-old in 1989.
