On the auspicious occasion of Mother’s Day, cricketers from around the globe posted heartwarming wishes for their moms on social media. On the second Sunday of May every year, the world celebrates Mother’s day to honour mothers and motherly figures.
Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar shared pictures of himself taking blessings from his mom and aunt on Twitter. He wrote: “Mothers are the ones who pray for you no matter how old you get. For them, you are always their child. Blessed to have two mothers in my life who have nurtured and loved me always. Wishing Aai and Kaku a very Happy #MothersDay, sharing some photos from the past.”

Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag posted few pictures of his mother and wrote a long poem in Hindi. One of the lines of Sehwag’s verse translates to: “No matter how big I become in life Mother, I am still your child today.”
घुटनों से रेंगते रेंगते
कब पैरों पर खड़ा हुआ,
तेरी ममता की छाओं में
जाने कब बड़ा हुआ!
काला टीका दूध मलाई
आज भी सब कुछ वैसा है,
मैं ही मैं हूँ हर जगह
प्यार यह तेरा कैसा है?
सीधा साधा भोला भाला
मैं ही सबसे अच्छा हूँ,
कितना भी हो जाऊं बड़ा
माँ, मैं आज भी तेरा बच्चा हूँ! #MothersDay pic.twitter.com/akY97tZaVs
