Congratulatory messages poured in thick and fast for Sachin Tendulkar, Cathryn Fitzpatrick and Allan Donald, after the trio was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame Class of 2019.
Expectedly, there was plenty of cheer for international cricket's leading run-scorer of all time.

Mel Jones paid rich tribute to Fitzpatrick, the former Australia fast bowler, who led the ODI bowling charts for women until 2017.
It was only a matter of time for one of Australia’s greatest bowlers to be inducted into the @ICC Hall of Fame. Fitting it’s along side another amazing quick in Alan Donald. No matter the score/opposition I never thought we were out of a game with Fitz at the top of her mark. 👏🏽 https://t.co/UQLb2bvGmo— Mel 'MJ' Jones (@meljones_33) July 19, 2019
Faf du Plessis, the current South Africa captain, was all praise for 'White Lightning'.
