Mumbai Indians had earlier paid their heartfelt tribute to Spider Man co-creator and Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee after he died at the age of 95 on Monday.
The three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) winners took to Twitter to share the tribute in which the franchise skipper Rohit Sharma can be seen posing along with Spider Man and Ironman.
In the post, Mumbai Indian wrote, "Spiderman, Ironman, Hitman everyone will miss you Stan Lee."
Lee, the face of comic book culture in the United States, died early Monday in Los Angeles after suffering a number of illnesses in recent years.
The New Yorker, known for his distinctive tinted glasses and impish grin, ended up in the comics business by accident, thanks to an uncle who got him a job when he was a teenager filling artists' inkwells and fetching coffee.
