The Indian cricket team has met Prime Minister Narendra Modi. After becoming the T20 World Cup winner, the Indian team met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Lok Kalyan Marg in Delhi. During this Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Roger Binny and Secretary Jay Shah on Thursday visited Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence and presented him a ‘NaMo 1’ jersey.

BCCI shared a photo of Roger Binny and Jay Shah presenting the Indian cricket team jersey to PM Modi on social media with the caption, “The victorious Indian Cricket Team met the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modiji at his official residence on arrival today. Sir, we express our heartfelt gratitude to you for your inspiring words and invaluable support provided to #TeamIndia. Jai Hind.”

Earlier, Prime Minister Modi also interacted with the World Cup winning team in New Delhi.

He interacted with head coach Rahul Dravid and members of the Indian cricket team during this meeting. The T20 World Cup-winning Indian team arrived in the national capital, where they were given a warm welcome by fans who were eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of their favourite players and the trophy.

During the meeting with the Prime Minister, the ‘Men in Blue’ wore a special jersey with two stars above the BCCI emblem. The Indian cricket team has won two T20 World Cups. India ended a 13-year ICC World Cup trophy drought with a win in the final on Saturday by defeating South Africa by seven runs. Virat Kohli’s 76 helped India reach 176/7, while Hardik Pandya (3/20) and Jasprit Bumrah (2/18) helped India restrict the Proteas to 169/8 despite Heinrich Klaasen’s 27-ball 52. Bumrah, who took 15 wickets in the entire tournament at an impressive economy rate of 4.17, also received the ‘Player of the Tournament’ title.

The team members, support staff, their families and media were stranded in Barbados, which was hit by Hurricane Beryl at the time. It was a category four storm that passed through Barbados at that time. The Grantley Adams International Airport in Bridgetown was closed for three days due to this storm. The flight was arranged by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah and it departed on July 2 and reached Delhi at around 6 am on Thursday.

Board officials and members of the media contingent associated with the tournament were also on the flight. From the airport, Team India reached the ITC Maurya Hotel, where they stayed before meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi. To celebrate the victory, a special cake with the T20 World Cup trophy was also cut at the hotel. Many stars including Rohit, Virat, Dravid and all-rounder Hardik Pandya participated in the cake cutting. The cake had some pictures of the trophy and Indian stars.
