Here is how some other cricketers also wished their fans on the auspicious occasion.
With lockdown imposed in most parts of India during the Covid crisis, the celebrations are expected to be low-key.
Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar when Muslims worldwide observe fasting from dawn to dusk. It started on April 14. During this period, the meal is taken before the sunrise which is called Suhur and the meal which is taken after the sunset is called Iftar.
During the day, believers cannot drink, eat food, or indulge in immoral activities. The culmination of the holy month happens with Eid-ul-Fitr, which is celebrated with much enthusiasm across the world by the Muslims.
