The five-time Indian Premier League (IPL) & two-time Champions League T20 champions Mumbai Indians (MI) pay tribute to our martyrs on the 12th anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attack. When it trends with the 26/11 Mumbai Attack, the Mumbai based franchise saluting the 26/11 Martyrs, wrote on its Twitter handle that "Never Forget'' that day.

Meanwhile, Team India is on the Australian tour to play three ODIs, three T20Is, and four Tests. India vs Australia series kick-start with the ODIs and the 1st ODI will be played tomorrow in Sydney at 9:10 AM IST. However, the Indian cricket team concerns about the fitness of the limited-overs Vice-captain Rohit Sharma. After guiding MI to a record fifth IPL title in UAE, Rohit returned home and later went to the NCA to work on his fitness and he misses the ODIs, T20Is, and first two Tests for the upcoming series against Australia.

'Hitman' Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians, who were the champions in the recently concluded tournament (IPL 2020) where the team decimated Delhi Capitals in the epic IPL final on 10th of November, 2020. With this win over the Capitals, MI extends their record-breaking fifth IPL title which was successfully held in the United Arab Emirates.

Mumbai terror attack 12th anniversary

On November 26, 2008, 10 terrorists trained by the Pakistan-based terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) carried out a series of coordinated attacks against multiple targets in Mumbai including the Taj Mahal hotel, the Oberoi hotel, the Leopold Cafe, the Nariman (Chabad) House, and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus train station, killing 166 people and thousands were wounded.

Nine terrorists were killed by the security forces including the National Security Guard (NSG), the elite Paramilitary Commando force of the nation. Ajmal Amir Kasab, the only terrorist to be captured alive, was hanged four years later on November 21, 2012.

Amid the violence, Mumbai and the rest of the country showed their anger and horror on that fateful November week 12 years ago. There were also incredible tales of courage, bravery, and sense of duty, of those men who faced the terrorists’ bullets while trying to rescue others, of those who fought back against terror. Some of these brave soldiers and men paid the ultimate sacrifice for us.
