October 2 is being celebrated as Swachch Bharat Diwas all over India. As the nation celebrates Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary, it is also the day the effort to keep the land clean is celebrated.
Team India has come out and done their bid in support of the campaign as the players have worn special stickers on their jerseys. This was visible when the entire team came out onto the ground for the National Anthems ahead of the first Test vs South Africa.
