Two of the biggest Indian cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli took to their Twitter handles to share an inspirational message for their fans on the occasion of Independence Day. Sachin shared an image of him from India’s 2011 World Cup win and wrote, “Everything in life is hard-earned. Just like our independence. Among countless other things, there would have been no ‘Team India’ if not for the sacrifice of our brave freedom fighters. Let us not take that freedom for granted. #HappyIndependenceDay”
While Virat wrote about unity, “Today, let’s celebrate the things that unite us all instead of dwelling on our differences. Howzzat for a change? #HappyIndependenceDay �� #StayWrogn @StayWrogn”, he posted.
Apart from Sachin and Virat another Indian cricket player Shikhar Dhawan joined the race and posted a message for his fans, “On this day, let us remember and salute our brave freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives for our country and our armed forces who risk their lives every day to keep our borders safe. Wishing all Indians a very #HappyIndependenceDay2018. Jai Hind! Vande Mataram!”, he wrote.
