As the country celebrated Teachers’ Day, former and current cricketers took to social media to covey their heartfelt gratitude to their teachers, mentors and coaches who helped them learn different skills and become a better human being. The Teachers’ Day is celebrated across the country on September 5 every year — the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who served as country’s first vice-president and second president. Ajinkya Rahane, India’s vice-captain in the longest format, took to Twitter to thank everyone who satisfied his quest to learn new things. “Everyday I have the quest to learn a little more from my mentors my game, my teammates, my coaches, my family and everyone around. #HappyTeachersDay to everyone who has ever taught me anything. Here’s to letting the urge to learn, never die,” Rahane tweeted.
