Mumbai, April 19: Former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar is set for another first, though this time it will be in the field of politics and not cricket. If he is in India (since the Indian Premier League is taking place in the UAE at the moment and he is the icon player of the Mumbai Indians), Tendulkar will cast his ballot on his 42nd birthday on April 24, the day 19 constituencies in Maharashtra, including those in Mumbai, his home town, will go the polls.

The Congress might be hoping that the 'date factor' influences Sachin fans

For a man who has several records on the cricket field, this will be a fresh experience, a notable one. Tendulkar's residence in Bandra falls under the Mumbai North Central Lok Sabha constituency.

Tendulkar, who retired from international cricket last November, is currently a Congress MP in the Rajya Sabha and was conferred the Bharat Ratna Award recently.
