Sorry, Mahi. That’s all we can say. 

We know what this World Cup meant for you. It showed in the way you tried, and it showed in the way you cried.

We never thought we will see this day, we never thought we will see you like this.

But it happened, and here we are, holding a million pieces of our hearts.

This tournament was anything but ideal for you. You got criticised, abused even. 

But when India needed you the most, you were there, strong as a pillar. 

That 50 couldn’t be enough today, but our hearts go out to you for everything you have done for us.

I know it might seem unfair, doing so much for your country and still falling short. But it wasn’t about the fairness of life as much as the simple gift of it. You have always been our gift.
