Shoaib Akhtar, the legendary fast bowler from the Pakistan cricket team, expressed admiration for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s compassionate gesture towards the Indian cricket team following their loss in the Cricket World Cup 2023 final. Despite India’s spirited fight against Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, resulting in the Aussies securing their sixth title, PM Modi took the initiative to meet the players in the dressing room after the match. This act of boosting their morale during a challenging period garnered praise from players such as Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami, who shared pictures of the meeting on social media.

In a recent interaction, Akhtar emphasized the significance of PM Modi’s gesture, acknowledging the tough period the cricketers were going through and the need for support after a heart-wrenching defeat. He commended the clear message conveyed by the Prime Minister, highlighting that it demonstrated the collective support of the nation for the Indian cricket team. Akhtar characterized this moment as emotionally charged for the players, emphasizing that PM Modi treated them like his own children, lifting their spirits and acknowledging their commendable performance.

PM Modi further extended his support by sharing a heartfelt message on social media after India’s World Cup defeat. His message conveyed appreciation for the team’s talent and determination throughout the tournament, acknowledging their spirited play and the pride they brought to the nation. PM Modi assured the team of the nation’s unwavering support, both at that moment and in the future.

Despite the disappointing end to the Cricket World Cup 2023 campaign for Rohit Sharma’s men, who were arguably the best team in the tournament until the final, they now look ahead to regroup and prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup, scheduled to take place in seven months.
