On India’s 73rd Independence day, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and the entire Cricketing fraternity express their gratitude towards the nation.
On August 15, 2019, India completed 72 years of freedom since gaining Independence on August 15, 1947.
It is a matter of pride for the entire nation that have been day by day inching towards becoming a global force by setting benchmarks in different fields.
Being a Cricket crazy nation, it is difficult to undermine the importance of how Cricket has changed the image of the nation. India have been a dominant force in the last two decades in the World of Cricket. In this time period, India became the only team to have won a T20 World Cup, a Champion Trophy win, and a 50 overs World Cup.
So, on India’s 73rd Independence day, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and the entire Cricketing fraternity took to Twitter to express their gratitude towards the nation.
Here are some of the best Tweets from the famous Cricketing personalities.
