“All of this is for Rishabh. Outstanding performance. When I learned of his accident, I started crying. It was worse when I visited him in the hospital. It’s wonderful that he returned from that and was back in the A-zone for one of the biggest games, India vs. Pakistan,” Shastri added.

However, you deserve recognition for how hard you worked because of your speedy recovery from the procedure and your range of motion. It serves as motivation to millions of people worldwide, not just for you. You may also steal victory from the clutches of hardship and death. Very well done, keep up the fantastic job,”stated Shastri.
