The world celebrates International Father's Day on Sunday, as every person on the planet honours his/her father on this grand day. But, of course, the same goes for sportspersons too.

Even the cricketers, be it former legends or contemporary ones, have honoured their father on this auspicious day. On the same note, we look at the Indian cricketers who celebrated Father's Day this year.

Most of them shared various tribute posts on social media. Starting from legendary former Indian Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, he shared a video paying tribute to his late father and poet Ramesh Tendulkar.

"We have some things that act as time machines for us. A song, a smell, a sound, a flavour. For me, it's something from my Father's childhood that always takes me on a trip down memory lane. On #FathersDay I want to share that special place with you all. Miss you always, Baba," he captioned it.
