‘Ye to hota rehta hai’: PM Modi consoles Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma after losing World Cup final | He watches – Magazine Creations

The Indian cricket team, led by skipper Rohit Sharma, lost the 2023 ODI World Cup final to Australia by 6 wickets on Sunday. However, after the match, the devastated Indian team received a special visitor to help lift their spirits in the form of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Prime Minister entered the Indian dressing room and consoled the Men in Blue who, despite their valiant efforts on the field, were unable to bring home the coveted trophy. Prime Minister Modi first spoke to veteran spinner Virat Kohli and skipper Rohit Sharma and advised them not to get discouraged about the result given their excellent run in the tournament.

Speaking to Rohit and Virat, the Prime Minister said: “Aap logpura 10-10 game jeet ke aaye ho, ye to hota rehta (I reached the final after winning 10 matches, and these things happen).”

Prime Minister Modi also advised the Indian captain to smile a little while noting that the entire nation was watching him. Prime Minister Modi then summoned Indian coach Rahul Dravid and expressed his appreciation for the hard work done by the Indian team.

The highlight of the two-minute clip was when the Prime Minister called the name of Indian player Mohammed Shami, telling him that he had performed well in the tournament, before pulling the player in for a warm hug. The Prime Minister also shook hands with the rest of the Indian team, including vice-captain KL KL, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah.

Shami was the highest wicket-taker in this edition of the World Cup, taking 24 wickets in just 7 matches at an average of 10.70 and a strike rate of 12.20. In addition, Virat Kohli was the highest run-scorer of the tournament with 765 runs, missing half-centuries in only 2 out of the 11 matches he played.
