As India mourns the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, several Indian cricketers have paid the heartfelt tributes to all those families and security personnel who lost their lives in the dreadful carnage.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to his official Twitter handle and paid homage to the martyrs.

“Remembering the innocent lives we lost and our bravehearts who saved many during the 26/11 attacks. You will always be remembered and will forever be in our hearts,” the 32-year-old batsman tweeted.

Meanwhile, former India player and one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar also posted an emotional message on Twitter, saying the wounds may have healed, but the scars remain.

"The wounds may have healed, but the scars remain. Of the lives lost and the sacrifices made. These shall always be a reminder of the strength of the human spirit to overcome any act of adversity. Remembering all our martyrs on this day. #MumbaiTerrorAttack,” said Tendulkar.

Besides Sachin, another former India player, Gautam Gambhir, also remembered the day as he tweeted, “12 years ago our sovereignty was violated & around 200 innocent souls killed. Never forget 26/11.”

The attacks, which took place on November 26, 2008, lasted for four days, leading to the death of 166 people and injuring over 300.

On the cricket front, Virat Kohli-led Indian side is currently gearing up to face Australia in the three-match ODI series, starting from November 27.
