Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians (MI) ignited the hopes of Indian fans of winning the ICC World Cup 2023 after Chandrayaan 3 landed successfully on the moon. They posted an epic picture in which they compared things from 2019 to 2023.
India as a nation achieved a historic achievement as Chandrayaan-3 successfully landed on the moon. The event took place around 6:00 PM on Wednesday (23rd August) and it kept the whole nation on its toes till Vikram the lander landed on the moon.
This becomes even more special because India’s attempt to send Chandrayaan in 2019 failed. The ISRO team worked even harder and then finally in 2023, they accomplished what they wanted to. After the success, social media was flooded with congratulatory messages.
Mumbai Indians came up with a unique picture, drawing a unique cricketing parallel. They highlighted the Chandrayaan-2 mission in 2019, which had failed in its landing on the lunar surface, and compared it with the Indian Cricket Team’s loss in the 2019 World Cup.
The IPL franchise indicated that ISRO made a successful comeback with Chandrayaan-3 and now, it’s Team India’s time to make a similar return and win the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023. They posted the picture with the caption: “Believe“
