India celebrated its 72nd Republic Day in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic on Tuesday. Like every year, many Indian cricket team stars took to social media to wish the fans and their loved ones on the special occasion of January 26.

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma led the wishes on Twitter and Instagram respectively. Several former Indian cricket team players, including Sachin Tendulkar, Suresh Raina, Virender Sehwag, and Irfan Pathan, also extended their wishes.

While most Indian cricket team players sent out the wishes via a social media message, Ajinkya Rahane preferred to post a photograph from the side’s recent Test series win against Australia.

Even Yuzvendra Chahal created a unique video with his wife Dhanashree Verma to wish the fans. Here are the top wishes from the Indian cricketers.

Indian cricketers have returned home after their grueling Test series against Australia. Following a few days’ rest, the team will soon take the field to play four Tests against England. Virat Kohli and co. are set to begin their quarantine period shortly.

India starts as the favorite to win the ICC World Test Championship series versus England. The Indian cricket team is yet to lose a match at home in this tournament.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, BCCI has allotted the four Tests to two venues only. Chennai will host the first two Tests behind closed doors.

Next, the two teams will lock horns at the new Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad. The third Test will be a Day/Night affair, while the fourth Test will be a red-ball game.

Ahmedabad will also play host to the five T20Is between India and England. Lastly, the two teams will face off in three ODIs at Pune’s MCA Stadium.
