Indian skipper Virat Kohli today applauded the efforts of ISRO for its ambitious moon mission — Chandrayaan-2. The Indian space agency — Indian Space Research Organisation — was to land its spacecraft on the lunar surface but communication was lost moments before the touchdown. The spacecraft may not have landed as per plan but several cricketers from the country applauded the efforts and hard work put in by ISRO scientists.

Hailing the scientists, Virat Kohli said: “There’s nothing like failure in science, we experiment and we gain. Massive respect for the scientists at ISRO who worked relentlessly over days and nights. The nation is proud of you, Jai Hind! Chandrayan2”

India’s one of the legendary leg-spinners Anil Kumble said that “the best is yet to come”. Yuvraj Singh too praised the scientists and said that the country was proud of the entire team at ISRO for the incredible work out in for the moon mission. “With hope and passion in our hearts let’s get up and do it again and never give up!” he added.

Here is how top cricketers from the country reacted:
