Captain of the Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni and star batsman Sachin Tendulkar offered floral tributes to the victims of the 26/11 terror attacks, at the Gateway of India on Saturday morning.

“That day, the Indian team was playing in Cuttack and all of us were stunned on hearing the news. We were not sure about what exactly happened but when we got back to our room and switched on the TV, we were shocked,” Sachin said. “And today, on 26/11/2011, we are staying in the same Taj that was attacked by terrorists. It was a strange feeling,” he said. The master blaster also thanked the jawans and the security men, who laid down their lives in the line of duty. MS Dhoni also praised the jawans and commandos saying that they were the ones who deserved to be treated as heroes and not the cricketers.
