Full List Of Indian Cricketers Invited For Ram Temple Inauguration: Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh is getting ready for the historic Ram Temple Pran Pratistha on January 22, and invitations to the huge occasion in the Indian holy city are being sent to several VVIPs. Several professional cricket players have been invited to the magnificent event on this holy occasion.

Prominent sports figures have been invited to the inauguration of the Ram Temple here next week, including football player Bhaichung Bhutia, chess mastermind Viswanathan Anand, sprint queen PT Usha, and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.

Several prominent faces from India’s cricket community are also receiving invitations to join the sacred assembly. Invitees include athletes like batting virtuoso Virat Kohli, two-time World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni, current Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, Harmanpreet Kaur, and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar.

The list of cricketers invited to the event also includes former captains of India Women, Mithali Raj, cricket legend Sourav Ganguly, and Anil Kumble.

Along with Sachin, the list also includes World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev, “little master” Sunil Gavaskar, Virendra Sehwag, Ravindra Jadeja, and current head coach Rahul Dravid.

The invitation to the consecration event of Ram Mandir was also sent to the ace spinner for India, Ravichandran Ashwin. PTI had access to the 500 state guest list, which is made up of a variety of lawmakers, actors, athletes, and businesspeople who have been invited to the event on Monday.

Former India opener and a BJP MP, Gautam Gambhir, shared a post about receiving the invitation. “Dad was honored to receive the invitation for प्राण प्रतिष्ठा! Jai Shri Ram!,” wrote Gambhir on X.

Kohli is expected to receive the BCCI permission before the Test series between Team India and England in Hyderabad starting January 25, as there isn’t any cricket activity until then. Kohli and his actor wife, Anushka Sharma, accepted the invitation at their Mumbai home.

For the England test, every member of the team was asked to reassemble in Bangalore. On January 21, Virat Kohli is scheduled to have a net session before departing for Ayodhya.
