PM Modi had recently lauded the Indian cricket team for their historic win against Australia last month. The Prime Minister during his monthly radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’ took a moment to appreciate the “hardwork” and “teamwork” displayed by the team in the recently-concluded Border-Gavaskar series.
“This month, we got good news from the cricket pitch. After initial hiccups, the Indian team bounced back gloriously and won the series in Australia. Our team’s hard work and teamwork was inspiring,” PM Modi said during his address.
In the ongoing second Test, India piled a stiff 329 on the board after electing to bat first. Rohit Sharma scored 161, while Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant chipped in with crucial half-centuries.
In response to India’s 329, the visitors were bundled out for 134 courtesey to R Ashwin’s yet another incredible bowling show.
India are looking to level the four-match series, after losing the opening match – also played at the same venue – by 227 runs.
