Diwali or the festival of lights is celebrated as the triumph of good over evil. It has been celebrated in India for centuries. But thanks to Indian Premier League which has a fair share of participation from foreign cricketers, these overseas players know a lot about Indian culture and festivals. And hence, on the day of Diwali, apart from Indian cricketers, even foreign players such as Steve Smith, AB de Villiers have taken to Twitter to wish their Indian fans.
Smith played for Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017 IPL, while AB de Villiers turned up for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Not even that, former IPL players such as Graeme Smith and Brad Hogg too took to Twitter to wish the fans on Diwali.
Here’s the tweets from Indian and foreign cricketers wishing fans a Happy Diwali.
