The world is celebrating Mother's Day today, and the Indian players are not too far behind in coming up with wishes for their mothers on social media on this special day.

Mother's day is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May.

Both current and former Indian cricketers took to social media to share some heart-warming messages and pictures. Sachin Tendulkar posted pictures of his "two mothers" with the caption:

"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."

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan also wasn't far behind and termed her mother as "best friend".

Here are some other posts where Indian cricketers showcased their affection for their mothers on Mother's Day:

Mumbai Indians posted a video where Suryakumar Yadav, along with other MI teammates, spoke about the impact their mothers had on their lives.

Ajinkya Rahane, meanwhile, decided to pledge his support for the 'Motherland' and people who are fighting against the raging pandemic in India.
