Jadeja and Shami thank fans, draw inspiration from PM Modi’s visit


India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja thanked the fans for their support throughout the World Cup and described the players’ meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the dressing room as’motivating’ after the conclusion of the 2023 World Cup. India came close to clinching the World Cup trophy after 12 years but ended up being too far from the trophy. Australia marched towards their sixth title with a comprehensive six-wicket victory.
Jadeja, who made his place in the ICC Team of the Tournament, thanked the fans for their support and wrote on [specify the platform], ‘We had a great tournament, but we ended up short yesterday. We are all heartbroken, but the support of our people is keeping us going. PM @narendramodi’s visit to the dressing room yesterday was special and very motivating.’
Jadeja played a crucial role for India throughout the tournament, taking key wickets in the middle overs. With the bat, he played an important role at number seven, amassing 120 runs in his five appearances in the middle. While with the ball, his economy rate was among the best, as he went for 4.25 per over, backing up the new-ball attacking line-up.
Indian fast bowler Mohammad Shami also expressed his gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said on X
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 @narendramodi for specially coming to the dressing room and raising our spirits. We will bounce back!
Mohammed Shami, who ended up being the highest wicket-taker in the tournament, showcased a remarkable performance, especially considering that he wasn’t part of the squad in the initial stages of the season.
Despite sitting out the first four matches, Shami emerged as a standout bowler, securing 24 wickets.
