“India changed my life. Forever and with great humility I accept my role to continuing growing bilateral relations between our two great nations.

“I am honoured to receive this remarkable falicitation from the Honourable @narendramodi Prime Minister of India celebrating 75 years of Independence as a Nation and in particular the role of the constitution in protecting democracy and human rights,” wrote Hayden.

The former Australian opener went on to express his love for India and the country’s diversity, and the culture of the nation. “I love India, it’s diversity, it’s ability to embrace change, protect and build its culture and most of all how supported and empowered India continues to make me feel. ❤️Oh and of course our greatest game,” said Hayden.


Earlier, Former England skipper Kevin Pietersen on Friday expressed his gratitude towards India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his greetings on India’s 73rd Republic Day. Taking to his Twitter, Pietersen wrote, “Dear, Mr @narendramodi, Thanks for the incredibly kind words in your letter to me. Ever since stepping foot in India in 2003, I’ve grown more in love with your country on every visit. I was recently asked, ‘what do you most like about India’ & my answer was easy – THE PEOPLE.”

“Happy Republic Day to all Indians for a couple days ago. A proud country & a powerhouse globally! I look forward to meeting you in person soon, to thank you for how India is a global leader in protecting its wildlife! My best wishes!” said in another tweet.

Pietersen’s tweets were a response to PM Modi’s letter of appreciation, in which he had thanked the former skipper for his affection towards India.

Pietersen’s remarks came a day after PM Modi also wrote a letter to the former South Africa batter, Jonty Rhodes, thanking him for his profound connection with the Indian culture.
