Diwali is known as the festival of lights and every household in India loves celebrating the auspicious day when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after killing Ravana. And the Indian cricketers also joined their families in celebrating the day as they turned to traditional wear to bring in the festive spirit.

From the legendary Sachin Tendulkar to current skipper Virat Kohli, everyone turned to ‘desi’ wear as they wished their fans and loved ones a very happy Diwali.

Wishing everyone a happy, prosperous and safe Diwali..🙏🏼#shotoniphone8plus
