PM Modi Appreciates Fighting Spirit Of Team India
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi was impressed with the fighting spirit the team showed in the nail-biting contest against New Zealand yesterday.
Chasing 240, a top-order collapse put India under the pump before Ravindra Jadeja’s sensational 77-run knock raised hopes of a turnaround but eventually the hot title-favourites fell short by 18 runs.
In his Twitter handle, PM Modi said that it was a disappointing result, but good to see team India’s fighting spirit till the very end.
