The cricketing calendar is in shambles due to the ongoing pandemic which has taken more than 2.75 lakh lives across the world. This has led to almost all the cricketers resorting to social media during this lockdown period. Rather some of them going live on Instagram with their fellow teammates and counterparts to entertain and engage the fans in these tough times.

The world is celebrating Mother’s Day on Sunday and social media, as expected, is filled with the wishes for the same. Even the cricketing fraternity was at the forefront in wishing and thanking Mother’s day for their untiring efforts towards their families. A lot of cricketers also posted their adorable picture with their mother while also writing an emotional message thanking them on this special day.

Among the first cricketers to take to Twitter was the legendary Sachin Tendulkar who felt his mother is irreplaceable. He also posted of his mother holding the baby Sachin in her arms. “You are AAI to me because, besides everything else you are Always Amazing & Irreplaceable. Thank you for everything you have done for me. Happy #MothersDay Aai,” his tweet read.

Meanwhile, Pakistan cricketer and the current T20I captain Babar Azam reminisced a heartwarming story while thanking his mother for standing by him throughout his life. He recalled the time when he bought his first ever bat for PKR 1500 and his mother had given him all the money from her savings.

“The first bat I purchased was of 1500 PKR. This was your entire saving but you gave it to me. You believed in me when others didn’t. Every inch of mine is indebted to you. I love you so much. Plz regard your mothers. Heaven lies under her feet. #MothersDay #RiseandRise,” his tweet read.
