In a crushing blow to the hopes of over a billion cricket enthusiasts, Australia emerged victorious over India in the World Cup final at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, securing their sixth title. Despite the disappointment, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a special visit to the Team India dressing room to boost morale and express solidarity with the players.

The emotional scene captured an embrace between star bowler Mohammad Shami and Prime Minister Modi, emphasizing the deep connection between sports and national pride. Shami, the tournament’s highest wicket-taker, took a moment to appreciate the support from fellow Indians throughout the competition. He expressed gratitude to PM Modi for the uplifting visit, pledging a resilient comeback:

“Unfortunately yesterday was not our day. I would like to thank all Indians for supporting our team and me throughout the tournament. Thankful to PM Modi for especially coming to the dressing room and raising our spirits. We will bounce back!”

Ravindra Jadeja echoed the sentiments, acknowledging the significance of PM Modi’s presence:

In a message addressed to Team India, Prime Minister Modi praised their talent and determination:

“Dear Team India, Your talent and determination through the World Cup was noteworthy. You’ve played with great spirit and brought immense pride to the nation. We stand with you today and always.”
