“The Entire Country Is Watching You”: PM Modi Consoles Team India Following Their World Cup Final Defeat

Date:

New Delhi: After a heartbreaking defeat against Australia in the ODI World Cup 2023 final last Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended his support and encouragement to the resilient ‘Men in Blue’, aiming to uplift their spirits after the hard-fought match.

In a video released by the Prime Minister’s Office, PM Modi can be seen offering words of encouragement to Rohit Sharma’s team, assuring them of the nation’s unwavering support despite the loss in the ODI World Cup 2023 final against Australia. PM Modi lauded the team for their hard work and resilience on the global stage throughout the tournament.

“You people have won 10 consecutive games. This one loss is normal, it keeps on happening. Please smile, the entire country is watching you. I just thought that I should go and meet you people,” PM Modi said inside India’s dressing room.

PM Modi also hailed Indian speedster Mohammed Shami and said that he had done well at the ODI World Cup 2023.

“Well done Shami. You played really well this time,” PM Modi said to Shami. Modi also asked the team to ‘stick together’ in this difficult time following their six-wicket loss against Australia in the finals.

While concluding, the Prime Minister cordially invited the squad to Delhi and asked them to meet again.

“You guys have worked really hard and played exceptionally well. Just stick together and keep on motivating each other. Also, whenever you are free and are in Delhi then let’s meet again. You all are cordially invited from my side,” he concluded.

During PM Modi’s visit to the dressing room, he interacted with every Indian player and encouraged them.

India bundled out on a score of 240 in 50 overs. On a tough batting surface, skipper Rohit Sharma (47 in 31 balls, with four boundaries and three sixes), Virat Kohli (54 in 63 balls, with four boundaries) and KL Rahul (66 in 107 balls, with one four) posted important knocks.

Mitchell Starc (3/55) was the pick of the bowlers for Australia. Skipper Pat Cummins (2/34) and Josh Hazlewood (2/60) also bowled well. Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell got a wicket each.

While chasing 241, India had the Aussies down at 47/3. Knocks from Travis Head (137 in 120 balls, with 15 fours and four sixes) and Marnus Labuschagne (58 in 110 balls, with four boundaries) left the Indian team without answers and guided them to a six-wicket win.

The World Cup finalists will now compete in a five-match T20I series which will begin on Thursday in Visakhapatnam.
