Raksha Bandhan is a festival that celebrates the love of a brother-sister relationship. As India celebrates Raksha Bandhan 2019, Team India cricketers came up with heartfelt messages for their sisters. Be it Jasprit Bumrah or Ajinkya Rahane, who celebrated it a day in advance as he had to leave for the two-match Test series against West Indies.
Suresh Raina, Deepak Chahar were among the other Indian cricketers who celebrated their bond with their sisters.
While some players made a video and posted on their social handles, some others opted to post a picture with a caption.
My lovely sister,
I promise to protect you from all evil, keep you happy & be your pillar of strength today, tomorrow and always.
Sending best wishes & lots of love to everyone celebrating.

Team India duties means I won't be here for Raksha Bandhan but I just couldn't miss out on celebrating with you, Juhika. Thank you for always being there for me. 🤗🤗 pic.twitter.com/ZkBMW0Xp3r
