New Delhi: There is a lot that goes into making an international cricketer.
The contribution of family and especially that of a mother happens to be one of the main reasons why young men turn into professional cricketers.
The sacrifices made by mothers to help fuel their children's dream from a very young age are truly special.
Hence on the occasion of Mother's Day, cricketing superstars from across the globe paid touching tributes to their respective moms.
From Sachin Tendulkar to Shane Warne, here is what they had to say about the most important person in their lives.
To all the mothers. Have a great mothers day..but to be honest. EVERY DAY is your day #reality. We owe u everything . Lots of Love and peace
