It makes us proud to see him contributing to our country to the best in so many different ways. During his cricketing career, he made several unbreakable records and established India as one of the strongest and most influential teams. His contribution is evident even after so many years of his retirement. And with the Indian Air Force, he has become a major representation and the face of the IAF for the young generation.
