India opener and Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma wished his fans and his teammates happy Diwali.

The Mumbai batsman recalled how the franchise had not won a single IPL title till 2013 and now they are the most successful side.
“One thing I have been hearing for the last one hour is – family. This team here is all about that. We have played as a family and that has been our strength. Whatever happens on the field – we win or we lose, we will be a family. That is something that has stuck with us all these years. I remember when I came into this team in 2011, until 2013, we had not won the title. Now, we stand here as the most successful team gives me a lot of pleasure to be a part of such a team. I am sure this team is scripted for greater heights,” said Rohit Sharma.
