Posting a picture of his wife and him, India Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane wrote on Twitter, “She's the one who makes my life complete! #WomensDay is not only about respecting them for a day, but about to make it as a habit all year round. Wishing all the powerful women out there, a very happy Women's Day! ”

India’s Test mainstay Cheteshwar Pujara also extended his wishes on Twitter: “This International Women's day I'd like to dedicate my wishes to every women of this world, especially the two beautiful women in my life - Puja & Aditi <3 #HappyWomensDay2019 #HappyWomensDay.

Shikhar Dhawan put out short clips with the women in his family and posted this beautiful note: “Blessed to have such incredibly strong women in my life who taught me and helped me shape into what I am today. Happy women’s day. Respect.”
