The cricketing fraternity congratulated Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on the successful launch of indigenous moon mission -- Chandrayaan-2 -- from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh.

Indian captain Virat Kohli tweeted congratulating ISRO. He said, "Another historic and proud moment for the nation as the #Chandrayaan 2 is launched. Jai Hind #ISRO #IndiaMoonMission"

"I congratulate Team @isro on achieving yet another milestone with the launch of #Chandrayaan2! Hope this paves the way for many more ambitious and successful missions in the future. Jai Hind!," Sachin Tendulkar tweeted.

Harbhajan Singh took a cheeky dig at Pakistan while congratulating ISRO for the moon mission. Harbhajan Singh wrote, "Some countries have moon on their flags. While some countries having their flags on moon"

The spacecraft took off at 2.43 pm on Monday, exactly a week post the mission was aborted after a technical snag was detected less than an hour before the launch.

ISRO had successfully completed the launch rehearsal of the Chandrayaan-2 mission on Saturday. It will be the first Indian expedition to attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface.

This mission will make India the fourth country after the US, Russia, and China to carry out a soft landing on Moon.
